This paper proposes a new agenda for information systems research: computer art. It explains why computer art might be seen as a kind of information system, and proposes an agenda for IS research that is based upon six themes in computer art and related work in previous IS research. Twelve research questions are suggested. The link between IS and computer art is bidirectional: our theories of information systems could inform the study of computer art, and computer art could inform our information systems theories. Possible barriers to IS researchers studying computer art are also discussed. The paper makes an important contribution by suggesting new opportunities for innovative research in IS and by signposting some of the topics that could be addressed.
