In April, the Sinclair ZX Spectrum will be 30 years old. Many people that hold creative, technical, and cultural positions now are, in some way or another, indebted to the little machine that plugged into the living room telly and caused pandemonium if someone stood on the space bar whilst a game was loading. Horizons is an event from Imperica, held at BFI Southbank on May 5 and 6 to celebrate the Spectrum’s 30th anniversary.
I’ll be giving a talk at 4pm on the 5th about how the ZX Spectrum fuelled my desires to create digital art.
