“The film and video artist Malcolm Le Grice (1940-, UK) has written about the issues raised by the emergence of the non-linear manipulation and its implications for film and video from ideas that have emerged from his own fine art practice, including a sustained period of working with accessible digital technology. In work such as Arbitrary Logic (1986), Sketches for a Sensual Philosophy (1988) and Digital Still Life (1989), Le Grice worked with inexpensive home computers (initially the Sinclair Spectrum and the Atari) to explore the potential of the digital and its implications for moving image within a fine art context.”
