Who is Henry?
Desmond Paul Henry ranks amongst one of the most important British pioneers of early computer art.
His work during the 1960s, creating drawing machines adapted from cutting-edge WW2 computer technology, heralded developments which would lead to contemporary Digital Art.
During the pioneering years of the 1960s, Henry featured in a number of publications and articles in the press. Since the completion in 2005 of Elaine O’Hanrahan’s MPhil thesis on Henry, literary and media attention has been renewed and gone from strength to strength.
