A young boy uses his head

Description:

Benares, India: Silk industry. A young boy uses his head-the armature for intelligence-quite literally as he transports a bundle of punched-data cards-another form of embedded intelligence-down a brick walkway, to be fitted onto Jacquard weaving machines to print out new design patterns for saris. This course will consider some of the key ways in which questions of technology have been absorbed into architectural and cultural practice. Image courtesy of Arindam Dutta. Used with permission.
