This article, originally published in 1974 and written by Tom Sherman, proposes the development of an artistic processing system referred to as the Art-Style Computer-Processing System (ASCPS). The ASCPS proposes to take real-time broadcasting signals from television broadcast networks and provide the viewer with the ability to manipulate the incoming signal using preset rules, transforming the screen image using visual aesthetics from various schools of painting throughout history. This system is intended to empower the viewer by enabling the manipulation of a one-way television broadcast.
