About this Artwork

This artwork celebrates the invention of the magnetic core memory. Before the proliferation of solid-state memory chips such as the Intel 1103 DRAM, core memory dominated the computer industry as the memory technology of choice.

The artwork includes a magnetic core plane from the 1960's Hewlett-Packard 2114, 2115, 2116 mini-computer series. The image is based on a microscopic photograph of the core memory, focused on one of the cores. The artwork contains information on the history and operation of core memory.
