Math, Art and Logic in Early Computation

I am excited to teach a course in the Critical Studies program at California College of Arts this Fall:

In this class, we will explore mathematics logically, historically and artistically by focusing on an early history of computation and cybernetics. Beginning with the birth of software and science fiction in the early 1800s, to gendered computation in WW2 through to the geodesic dome in the 1970s, we will look at ways that math has solved problems of communication, computation and control, and ways that artists have contributed to, resisted, or utilized each mathematical, logical or computational moment.
