Alan Turing was fundamental in shaping the practice we now know of as programming. His influence on concepts like input, processing and output are instrumental to the technological advances that have stood on its shoulders.

‘The Future Of Programming’ Exhibits distil fundamental principals of programming to share them with a wide audience.

The exhibits are a series of playful, interactive sculptures for visitors to explore and understand programming in a hands-on way.

We have selected three of the most important programming concepts to focus on and base the sculptures on:

1. LOOPING
2. VARIABLES
3. CONDITIONALS

Miriam worked in collaboration with Hirsch & Mann in the creation of these works.
