ANDY WARHOL'S lost art on floppy disks
In 1985, North American computer manufacturer Commodore released the Amiga 1000, one of their most powerful personal computers on the market. To show off the computer’s advanced graphics capabilities, they approached none other than Andy Warhol to complete a series of digital works using a prototype of the computers state-of-the-art software imaging tools ahead of the computer’s release.

Thought to be lost forever, the imagery that Warhol produced was recently rediscovered in the archives of the Andy Warhol Museum thanks to Carnegie Mellon’s University Computer Club. The Club was able to resurrect 28 digital images that Warhol saved on floppy disks. Below, Warhol showcases using the software to create a portrait of Debbie Harry on an Amiga at the Commodore Amiga product launch press conference in 1985.
