*Abstract*
At first sight, computer art would seem to be utterly at variance with 
"the Gothic"--especially given Ruskin's emphasis on the handmade, and 
his critique of mechanisation in general. However, six of his twelve 
principles of Gothic art could be satisfied by various types of computer 
art. (These deal with the properties of the art object.) The other six, 
which deal with the spirit of art-making, are more problematic. But even 
they can sometimes be satisfied indirectly.

*Biography*
Margaret A. Boden OBE ScD FBA is Research Professor of Cognitive Science
at the University of Sussex, where she helped develop the world's first
academic programme in AI and cognitive science. She holds degrees in
medical sciences, philosophy, and psychology (as well as a Cambridge ScD
and three honorary doctorates), and integrates these disciplines with AI
in her research, which has been translated into twenty languages. Her
recent books include The Creative Mind: Myths and Mechanisms; Mind as
Machine: A History of Cognitive Science; and Creativity and Art: Three
Roads to Surprise. She has two children and four grandchildren, and
lives in Brighton.
