Babbage Lovelace

Text Stream 5

A generative animation based on the collected texts of 18th-century polymath Charles Babbage and 19th-century mathematician Ada Lovelace, known for their contributions to Babbage’s proposed Analytical Engine—the first computer. In this piece, letters flow in a turbulent stream and occasionally form sentences.
