Yearly Focus #3 > Mathematics and Computation + Thread Interlacing

This year’s research focus of “The Museum of Lost Technology” research project is set on “Mathematics and Computation + Thread Interlacing”. The theoretical and practice-led research activities will take place between November 1, 2022, and October 30, 2023 in conversation with the project’s extra-disciplinary advisor in mathematics, Doz. Dr. Franz Embacher.
