The Andean Information Age
by Oscar Santillán, Alessandra Troncone
Over a thousand years ago a form of material code emerged among the Andes mountains. By means of knotted ropes, called ‘quipus’, numbers and words were enacted. This publication The Andean Information Age knots together a universe of stories related to the quipu system, the history of its ongoing decipherment, and the disruption that this sensorial code may be able to trigger in our present.
