Newly Discovered Warhol Artworks Found On Amiga Floppy Disks From 1985

From The Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry:

A multi-institutional team of new-media artists, computer experts, and museum professionals have discovered a dozen previously unknown experiments by Andy Warhol (BFA, 1949) on aging floppy disks from 1985.

The purely digital images, “trapped” for nearly 30 years on Amiga® floppy disks stored in the archives collection of The Andy Warhol Museum (AWM), were discovered and extracted by members of the Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) Computer Club, with assistance from the AWM’s staff, CMU’s Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry (FRSCI), the Hillman Photography Initiative at the Carnegie Museum of Art (CMOA), and New York based artist Cory Arcangel.

It’s kinda funny to be presented with the news of new works by established artist from a digital medium, but then again it is well known that Warhol loved working with the Commodore Amiga - some links below:

I’ve been wondering this for a while

Are brown boots on business women the new conspicuous consumption?
Does having new brown boots mean you have money and the means to meet the demands of fashion?
New tight jeans or leggings and brown boots meaning the women is of a social and class distinction.
Does wearing an American flag sweater or wind breaker make you white trash?
Yes, it does, all of this.
Art is free, life is expensive, but time costs money and art takes time.
I guess art isn’t free.
You are currently paying with time to read this, you 1 or 3 ppl.
Do you own nice brown boots?
The bus driver says hi very nicely.
