Those of us who are computer artists are pleased that Jennifer Steinkamp has met with some degree of success with her art ("Awash in a Dance of Colors," by Hunter Drohojowska-Philp, Nov. 19), but I am dismayed at her elitist, negative attitude toward other computer artists: "Most computer art is terrible."
Like a growing number of artists, she has opted to use computer technology to express herself. Like many of us, she has discovered that the computer allows artists to expand their vision and imagination in limitless and inspiring new ways. Just as the paintbrush and camera opened fresh means of expression to the artist, so too does the computer. But the computer does not create the art--the artist does.
