The Emerson Contemporary Media Art Gallery presents the documentary exhibition of Cybernetic Serendipity celebrates the 1968 show at the ICA in London in 1968, which was the first to attempt to demonstrate all aspects of computer-aided creative activity including art, music, poetry, dance, sculpture, and animation. The principal idea was to examine the role of cybernetics in contemporary arts.

The original exhibition included robots, poetry, music, and painting machines, as well as other works where chance was an important ingredient. The documentary exhibit is curated by Jasia Reichardt from her archives of that groundbreaking exhibition.
