"The encrypted sculpture artist Ashley Zelinskie, the designer and textile researcher Francesca Rodriguez Sawaya and the PhD mathematician specialist in knot theory Dr. Laura Taalman bring to Lima the interactive installation ‘Encrypted Bridge’, a hanging bridge weaved by hand that connects tradition with technology. Inspired by knot language and Peruvian textile designs, this installation invites everyone to add an encrypted message to the bridge. The language, created specifically for this installation, is inspired by the old record system Quipu, morse code, binary and hexadecimal. It was mathematically developed to encrypt letters in a knot system that would represent information in an equivalent way. ‘Encrypted Bridge’ utilizes the practice of art making as a way of remembering and honoring our cultural heritage, by using today’s technological tools."
