In this paper I posit the idea that the term ‘compumorphic art’ can be used to describe an emergent collection of artists and artworks that reference the digital computer for creative stimulus, cultural commentary and aesthetic composition. The term compumorphic art can be thought of as a useful placeholder to describe the relationship between material art and inanimate/digital content in the context of the 21st Century technological/artistic experience.
