Description

»Monster Resurrection«, a video installation by the artist and theorist David Link, portrays four British engineers and curators who practiced media archeology long before the liberal arts discovered this theme. Christopher P. Burton, John Harper, Tony Sale and Doron Swade worked intensively over many years on reconstructing four machines, which represent some of the milestones in the history of computing machines.
