Pattern and Code: Workshop
March 11 @ 2:30 PM - 4:30 PM
Presented by Ahree Lee, multi-media artist working in video, photography, sound and interactive installations (ahreelee.com).
Did you know the first computer program was written by a woman and that the design of the first computers was inspired by the jacquard weaving loom? New media and textile artist Ahree Lee will share her most recent body of work, which explores the interconnections between weaving and computing, and the often-overlooked but essential role of women in the development of coding.
Additionally she will lead participants in a weaving activity to experience the interconnections between fiber-related arts and computing through hands-on making. The UWM Digital Humanities Lab will mail weaving supplies to participants ahead of the workshop date. See registration form for details.
