  4. “Everybody has their own America,… a fantasy that they think is out there [but it is] pieced… together from scenes in movies and music and lines from books. And you live in your dream America that you’ve custom-made from art and schmaltz and emotions as much as you live in your real one.” –Andy Warhol

    A multidisciplinary group at Carnegie Mellon University has recovered three new digital images produced by Andy Warhol in 1985. The files were found on “Amiga floppy disks stored in the archives collection of The Andy Warhol Museum,” according to a news release.

    (Warhol was introduced to the personal computer by none other than Steve Jobs, who brought a Macintosh to Sean Lennon’s ninth birthday party in New York.)
