Victorians Decoded: Art and Telegraphy celebrated the 150th anniversary of the first successful communications cable laid across the Atlantic Ocean, connecting Europe with America. A collaboration between Guildhall Art Gallery, King's College London, The Courtauld Institute of Art and the Institute of Making at University College London, the exhibition used iconic Victorian paintings and early telegraphic objects to explore how cable telegraphy transformed people's understanding of time, space and speed of communication.
This item contains the programme and speaker abstracts for the Coding and Representation conference, 20-21 January 2017, Guildhall Art Gallery and The Courtauld Institute of Art, London.
The conference emerged from the 2013-2017 research project, 'Scrambled Messages: the Telegraphic Imaginary 1857-1900' and coincided with the Victorians Decoded exhibition at Guildhall Art Gallery, 20 September 2016 - 22 January 2017.
