Migrations #2 – Nicholas Brooks
In the annals of the history of the computer can be found a curious programmable antecedent. The Jacquard was a device developed to replace the human operator of the part of a weaving loom that creates the pattern. The films and lecture explore this early stage of a new method of reproduction and the moment of separation between the visual idea and its mechanical dislocation, between the thought and its iteration into machine pattern.
