Shea Zellweger

 THE LOGIC ALPHABET

In 1953, while working a hotel switchboard, Shea Zellweger began a journey that would culminate in a radical new notation for formal logic, the set of relations underling modern computing. From a garage in Ohio, Zellweger developed a visual language he called the “Logic Alphabet,” in which a group of specially designed letter-shapes are maneuvered like puzzle pieces to reveal the geometric patterns hidden beneath the symbolic web. In this jewel box exhibit, the Institute for Figuring and the Museum of Jurassic Technology present Zellweger’s Logic Alphabet models and drawings.
