About the Artwork

Information Workers is an image of an IBM 701. It was a vacuum tube-based calculator that preceded programmable computers. The 701 had banks and banks of vacuum tubes that provided the switching logic for its calculations. The Information Workers title has a double meaning. First, the tubes were the "workers" that allowed the 701 to process information. Second, looking at this sea of tubes, it made me think of the huge number of workers today whose modern craft is creating, processing, and managing digital information.
