Human Factors in Computing Systems

A series of xerox transfers, Human Factors in Computing Systems focuses on a particular kind of historical, institutional gaze: that of early corporate and academic computing centers engaged in their initial processes of self-representation and identity formation. The images here are drawn from corporate marketing brochures and documentary photographs from the dawn of the computing age, selecting images that situated people in the computer spaces, and depict inter-personal exchanges between multiple workers. Series of 5 images. Each image is 30 x 44”, solvent transfer on rag paper.

Shown at And The World Is Ours at Compact Space, February-March 2010.
