Twelve long lost works from Andy Warhol have been found and recovered from Commodore Amiga floppy discs. The artworks were originally commissioned by computer company in 1985 -- just two years prior to the iconic pop artists death -- as a means of promoting the Amiga 1000 artistic capabilities. But they sat forgotten about until they were discovered in 2011 by Cory Arcangel of the Andy Warhol Museum who thought to look for them after seeing a Youtube video of Warhol drawing Blondie front-woman Debbie Harry on an Amiga at a press conference in 1985 (you can watch it below).

Arcangel enlisted the help of Carnegie Mellon Univeristy to recover the images from the outdated and obscure hardware. The process took three years and involved the use magnetic imaging tools, and reverse engineering to ensure the files weren't damaged or lost for good. Of the eighteen images they recovered in total, twelve were signed by Warhol.
