A gallery show featuring ANSI art from legendary artists Somms and Lord Jazz of ACiD is taking place this Saturday, January 12th at 20 goto 10 in San Francisco.
ANSI art is a computer artform using text characters on computers with MS-DOS (before windows) which was popular in the late 80â€™s and early to mid 90â€™s. It was mainly used for BBSes, which was software that would allow users to dial into the computer over a phone line and, using a terminal program, interact with it, read/post on forums, and exchanging messages, exchange files. being only text on a terminal, artists never really pictured this as a limitation.
