SEL(Standard Elektrik Lorenz AG) | i |
name: SEL(Standard Elektrik Lorenz AG)

A former German manufacturer of electronic devices of many sorts, based in Stuttgart. Until 1987 a subsidiary of ITT, then bought by Alcatel and continued under the name Alcatel-SEL. Today (since 2006) Alcatel-Lucent.

In the context of digital art, the SEL creation of the computer ER 56 is of importance. The Computing Center of the University of Stuttgart owned such a machine when in the early 1960s Frieder Nake did his first works of computer art using this machine (since 1963).
