Herbert W. Franke, 1971 (Preface to the first edition):

The works from computers nowadays covered by the term computer art are in my opinion among the most remarkable products of our time:
-not because they surpass, or even approach, the beauty of traditional forms of art, but because they place established ideas of beauty and art in question;
-not because they are intrinsically satisfactory or even finished, but because their very unfinished form indicates the great potential for future development;
-not because they resolve problems, but because they raise and expose them.
