Spinning and Weaving Ada is a sculpture of mirror boxes and a 3D animation of a spider spinning a net out of the letters ADA LOVELACE. Ada Augusta Lovelace is a 19th century mathematician who’s notes contained algorithms that are considered to be the blueprint for the world’s first software and computer. She is seen not only as the first computer innovator, but also as a pioneer of the web. The animation is a homage to Ada Lovelace and the qualities associated with spinning and weaving: to connect, to make patterns and forms from a multitude of threads, to make nets and networks.
