The Hollerith Cypher
Gallerie Shambourg
Artist: David Louis Hollerith-Stevens

Artist Statement: :As a distant relative of Herman Hollerith, the man who created the Hollerith punched card and who was a pre-founder of what became the IBM corporation, I feel a connection to the modern industry of data processing as well as to mathematics and computational analysis. This series of visualizations is my attempt to fuse the ideas of numbers and the ideation of art. And, yes, there is a cipher -- or series of ciphers -- hidden in the art work with clues in the captions. Good luck solving the mysteries. You will need it!
