Programming with a Paintbrush
Richard Wright

A comparison of two highly contrasting designs of artist’s moving image software - Quantel and Adobe After Effects. This detailed critical essay analyses how a creative practice is constructed not through the technical definition of the software nor its visual design but its “techno-aesthetic” – the cultural models and encoded subjectivities by which a system’s unknown technological potential is realised as an artistic practice. Illustrated.
