10 million years ago (in computer terms anyway) SCAN was born!


Back when computers were the exclusive domain of techies called the Personal Computer Arts Group held, maybe the first computer music concert, in Philadelphia back in1978. In 1980 that group became a little more formalized and became the Small Computers in the Art Network.


With this site we are attempting to document the contribution that SCAN made over the years to move computers from creating spread sheets and legal documents to ART.


If you were around during that time and can contribute please contact us and share. In the meantime we are slowly putting up information beginning with some of the proceedings in searchable PDF format.
