An excellent and timely show - opening just as Adam Curtis' documentary "All Watched Over By Machines of Loving Grace", on BBC2, mines the world of cybernetics and its, possibly profound, socio-economic implications. A good reminder that artists working with computers and technology is not a recent phenomenon, and that artists are at the forefront of using new technologies in their practice, and working with new ideas and theories.
