The Money-Work System in Micro Arts MA2 Various Unusual Events (1984)

Animation of SCUM Manifesto by Valerie Solanas (1967).

Micro Arts MA2 Various Unusual Events (1984) was a set of computer art examples, including an animation, a sort of primitive digital comic, with this sad faced male as anti-hero. In this image, he gazes sadly in the mirror. Solanas was a (later) diagnosed paranoid schizophrenic who shot Andy Warhol, critic Mario Amaya and tried to shoot manager Fred Hughes. The previous year Solanas submitted a manuscript to Warhol, but he suspected police entrapment as the script was so extreme. He mentioned this in an interview, and then lost the manuscript, triggering Solanas’s psychotic homicidal rage. This is covered best in POPism by Andy Warhol and Pat Hackett. Solanas was more or less let off by the NYPD, who searched Warhol's Factory for evidence against him, before having the murder weapon pointed out to them. It's easy to forget how controversial Warhol was.

Solanas agitated for a money-free women-only system to solve the world’s ills. A universal benefit system with electronic money was explored in one of my fictions, a novella ‘Death in the Bubble World’ (1997). This invented an electronic currency, please visit the site ‘Easy Money Units’.

1984 - official accredited historical computer art - Micro Arts 1980s group. Public algorhythmic art, story generators, animations from the first independent computer art group. Search for: Micro Arts Computer Arts Archive UK. Also see microartsgroup com website. New versions of the historic work, and also new work from Geoff Davis, the founder, is an AI researcher in text generation at UAL London UK.
