Join Locust Projects for a durational performance of Jeff Thompson: Human Computers and explore the early history of computing, office culture, automation of labor, and the layers of abstraction and standardization found in technological systems. Over the course of six hours, a group of thirteen performers will decode a single digital image entirely by hand using only pencils and paper worksheets. The results of this labor will be installed in the space for the duration of the exhibition, serving as documentation of the computations and providing context to the "office" existing in the gallery space.
On July 8, 2020 we will reopen BY APPOINTMENT ONLY, following CDC health and safety guidelines and County, City and State government mandates including required face-coverings, increased sanitization, and social distancing measures.
Appointments available Wed-Sat, 12-6PM. Schedule your appointment here!
