“In 1970, artist and writer Jack Burnham curated the exhibition ‘Software – Information Technology: Its New Meaning for Art’ at the Jewish Museum in New York. The first major US art and technology exhibition that attempted to utilize a computer in a museum context, ‘Software’ expressed technological ambitions that were matched by Burnham’s conceptually sophisticated vision.”[1]
