Pia Ednie Brown
Her Triumphant Software: Futures, Codes and Embodied Knowing.
‘The Triumph of Software’ was the title of a 1968 essay by architectural commentator, Reyner Banham, about the degree to which ‘software’ beats ‘hardware’, and why the film Barbarella offers us a superior architecture than that in Kubrick’s film, 2001. Looking back at least 50 years, and forward for at least as many, this lecture explores where computers came from, what kind of futures we imagine through them, and why the slimy, material world of fleshy realities might still hold the key to understanding, engaging with and modelling the abstractions of code.
