Analog computers have been much more successful as tools for the creative artist than digital computers. Analogy computers are quite successfully used in music and more recently, in video art. Most of the current work in digital computer art suffers from the real lack of fluidity in control, which is why the work appears so sterile and mechanical. What this project has attempted is the creation of dynamic, flexible, user-programmable input devices and requisite control structures. This report will attempt to communicate the actual progress we have made in humanizing digital computer for aesthetic ends.
