Over the past year, Becca Rose has been exploring computers with potatoes and found that many wonderful stories emerge in the process. Almost everyone has a potato story and spuds have a wondering way of connecting people and making the seemingly complex or hardness of talking about computation disappear.
As pedagogical apparatus, potatoes bring many modes of being and thinking into spaces of computing through their stupidity, questioning of computing mastery, the activation of collective storytelling, and forgetting of traditional ways of doing computing. Join the Potato Computer Club and learn about different technologies, tools, and practices… Becca is planning on making some logic gates, speakers, and maybe some kind of potato heads,.. do you already know what kind of potato computers can we make atc PIF???
