A full colour, 100 page book with newly commissioned texts about the inspiring digital artwork of Paul and Daniel Brown who work together as Brown & Son. Art That Makes Itself: Brown & Son, Purveyors of Digital Images since 1968 is the first title in a new Brown & Son publication series which will focus on the history and development of algorithmic, generative and systems art seen through the lens of a father and son artist duo whose works span sixty years of digital art production. With insightful contributions from Jim Boulton, Daniel Brown, Paul Brown, Maria Chatzichristodoulou (aka Maria X), Peter Fowler, Golan Levin and Irini Papadimitriou and extended essays by leading art historian Grant D. Taylor and V&A senior curator, Douglas Dodds. This book is edited by Bronańč Ferran and designed by Daniel Brown.

" While differences are clearly visible between the art of Paul and Daniel Brown, each approach centres on the same quest, a unique type of shared artistic vision in which an autonomous and self-making art is made real. "

Grant D. Taylor
