Georg Nees, 1969

"The CACHe Project is an archive of pioneering British computer art

From 2002 to 2005 CACHe was based at the Vasari Lab in the School of History of Art and Visual Media, Birkbeck, University of London. It digitised and catalogued the image holdings of the Computer Arts Society and several other archives that charted the development of computer-based art in the UK. These archives offer a unique record of the evolution of digital imagery in the 1960s and 1970s.

The core archive of art works collected by the Computer Arts Society has now been acquired by the Victoria and Albert Museum."
