Cybernetic Serendipity Exhibition at The ICA

Remember when computers were sexy, new, futuristic things of wonderment and mystery? Perhaps you're not that old. 

The Cybernetic Serendipity exhibition ran at the ICA, Nash House, London, from August 2nd to October 20th in 1968.  

Here's a cartoon from the programme...

An album was compiled to go with the exhibition. It's not all computer-generated music (there's classical modernism) but it contains some great tracks.

There's a wonderful page dedicated to the show here. It features more photos and videos as well as a download for the album and PDF of the programme. One thing I can tell you that isn't mentioned there is that it cost £59,000 to put on and lost £24,157. That's not necessarily a fascinating fact.
