Starting in fall 2019, I began teaching a workshop that included a hands-on material history of computing, meant to instill a tactile understanding of electronic computation. For the purposes of this workshop, I created an analog binary decoder, inspired by the history of cryptography. I also used The Interlace Project's portable loom, to help illustrate the relationship between weaving, encryption, and computation.
I first held this workshop as part of my scholarship at Pumping Station: One, and have since been hired to hold it at other venues including Mana Contemporary and The Wing. So far, the workshop has filled up within a day or so of posting.
