Seeing Heritage Algorithms is an exhibition of artwork by area youth using computational quilting software designed by Stamps professors Audrey Bennett and Ron Eglash. The artwork on view generates from a community-based STEAM workshop led by an interdisciplinary team of University of Michigan students. In the workshop, youth explore African-American, Native, and Appalachian textile traditions, creatively use these heritage algorithms” to make their virtual designs on the screen, and physically render their creations as quilt blocks using an appliqué technique. 

This exhibition is supported by the National Science Foundation.
