The Museum of Computer Art - MOCA

The Museum of Computer Art (MOCA) is an online museum where you can find examples of many types of computer art. Don Archer and Bob Dodson co-founded MOCA in 1994. Since then the museum's collection has grown. As with most forms of art, the lines that distinguish one type of computer art from another are vague sometimes, but at MOCA you will find several online exhibits featuring samples of the best art that is being created on the computer.

First there are works by digital artists that use "natural media" software to create paintings and drawings. Also you will find digital photography and photo manipulation represented in some great exhibits. My favorite was Humanscapes by Nathan Brusovani.

Other types of digital art that you would expect to find are 3D and animation. Currently you will find 3D Abstract Art by Amichai Shavit, Art of 3D by Tibor Kovacs-egri and Animation GIFs by Steve Bennett. Finally there are several examples of mathematical art including Mathematical Art by Karin Kuhlmann, The Fusion of Art and Technology by Thomas Vilot and Digital Abstraction by John Clive.

If you are new to digital art and would like some background on computer art as well as where it may be headed in the future, you can find several good articles at MOCA.

Currently MOCA is holding its fourth annual digital art contest that will run through March. It is open to anyone who wishes to participate. There are no individual art categories and each contestant is limited to one entry. I visit MOCA often and enjoy it very much.
