This show is the first opening in Mark Allen's (c-level, LAATHC) new gallery
Story Teller is an experimental narrative about British mathematician/code breaker Alan Turing told using obsolete media -- perforated paper tape, teletype, phoneme-speech, glowing phosphors and ink-on-paper. The text is encoded 8 bytes per inch on a 700 foot spool of paper tape, which runs through a variety of cold war era technologies on an eight hour journey from spool to floor.
Historian of cold war computing and archivist of obscure and extinct technologies, Mr Jennings is the founder of FidoNet, the largest amateur computer network in the world, as well as a recipient of Electronic Frontier Foundation's Pioneer Award. We're very flattered to present his first one man show in Los Angeles.
