Bennett Williamson’s Screenshots from The Computer Chronicles (resized and cropped) is a new body of work created specifically for the Add-Art Firefox plugin. The images are from still frames of The Computer Chronicles, a weekly public television show running from 1983-2002 produced by the College of San Mateo’s KCSM-TV. Since its cancellation, nearly all the episodes have been digitized and made available for free download from the Internet Archive.
