The Soul of a Machine By Micheal Francis Kelly

I was working on a portfolio one day and noticed a strange Moire pattern in the thumbnail images I was reviewing. I zoomed into the full image to try and figure out what was wrong with the image. I... More > had to zoom deeper and deeper into the image to find what I was looking for. If you look at a normal digital image at extreme zoom you usually see colored squares that change slowly and gently as the image colors change. When I zoomed into this image I found wild mechanical patterns rather than clumps of similar colors. It meant my camera was broken. But I became fascinated as I “wandered” through this zoomed in world by the strange patterns. This portfolio is the result of extracting minut sections of just one image. In fact they are all “photographs” from one single image taken with my camera.< Less

A man is stranded on a desert island. Reality. He remembers how water tastes. But, remembering is not the same as having. There are a lot of things he had. Walter is a man on the run. There... More > aren’t many places to run on a desert island. But a man can run even if there should only be one wood plank left to the world. This is the description of a classic mystery tale. Part philosophic thriller, part refined love story. Who is the murderer and will he be brought to justice?< Less
Volume 3144, International Conference on Abstract State Machines, Alloy, B and Z --- International cricket in 2013–14 By Print Wikipedia

Volume 3144, International Conference on Abstract State Machines, Alloy, B and Z---International cricket in 2013–14 Print Wikipedia is a both a utilitarian visualization of the largest... More > accumulation of human knowledge and a poetic gesture towards the inhuman scale of big data. Michael Mandberg wrote software that parses the entirety of the English-language Wikipedia database and programmatically lays out nearly 7500 volumes, complete with covers, and then uploads them to Lulu.com for print-on-demand. Print Wikipedia draws attention to the sheer size of the encyclopedia's content and the impossibility of rendering Wikipedia as a material object in fixed form: Once a volume is printed it is already out of date. It is also a work of found poetry built on what is likely the largest appropriation ever made. As we become increasingly more dependent on information and source material on the Internet today, Mandiberg explores the accessibility of its vastness.< Less
Introduction to Computing: Explorations in Language, Logic, and Machines By David Evans
Paperback: $58.30
Prints in 3-5 business days
This book is a survey introduction to the most important ideas in computing. It focuses on the big ideas in computer science including the major themes of recursive definitions (we can define things... More > in terms of smaller versions of themselves), universality (programs are just another kind of data), and abstraction (hiding unnecessary details and giving things names). It covers how to describe information processes by defining procedures, how to analyze the costs required to carry out a procedure, and the fundamental limits of what can and cannot be computed mechanically.< Less

Towards Self-aware Virtual Machines By Camillo Bruni
Paperback: List Price: $9.49 $6.64 | You Save: 30%

Reflection allows a language to inspect and alter its own execution and state. High-level languages typically run on top of VMs which have been built to create an abstraction layer over... More > hardware. Reflection is generally limited to the language-side. In several research VMs it is possible to reflectively modify VM components from language-side. In this dissertation we strive for a unified language-runtime or self-aware VM. Instead of looking for a holistic solution we focus on a minimal approach on top of an existing VM. We first present Benzo our framework for dynamic native code activation. Benzo provides a generic low-level interface to the VM internals. Based on this framework we evaluate several applications that typically require direct VM support. We show first how to build an efficient FFI interface, allowing for a more structured access to VM internal functions. To evaluate the limitations of Benzo we target two more applications: dynamic primitives and a language-side JIT compiler.< Less
Abstract Ice, Plates in Sink and Alka-Seltzer (in Box) By David E. Stone

"Abstract Ice, Plates in Sink and Alka-Seltzer (in Box)" is one book from a continuing collection by David E. Stone entitled "The Photographic Series". A colorful abstracted image... More > of an ice cube from the side of a Coke machine, a handful of yellow plates in a kitchen sink and close-up pictures of packets of Alka-Seltzer are seemingly unlikely subjects but in this book; they become heroic subjects for a red, yellow blue color study. The Photographic Series books are not intended to replicate or catalog the series (as they rarely include all of the proofs) and since they are not the original images, the artist considers them to be curated surveys of images from the series and as such, are recontextualized by the pairings for the purposes of being a book.< Less
Natalie and the Gumball Machine: A Counting Model for Understanding the Value of Quarters By Enrique Ortiz

Natalie wants to buy a gumball from the gumball machine. Follow her story and learn about coin values. This book can be used to help children learn about coin values at a more concrete level. It... More > may be used to accommodate for their specific needs and learning styles. Teachers, tutors and parents will find the proportional coin kit, which is provided at the end of the book, very helpful in helping kids learn about coin values and problem solving. The proportional coin kit can be used with this book and other coin activities, with or without regular coins. You can make a copy of this page (in color if possible) and cut the proportional coins. Students' drawings may be used to support the use of the proportional coins at the representational level. Mathematical sentences or equations are provided in most pages to help the connections with the abstract level. The book can be used at different levels depending on students' backgrounds, strengths and needs.< Less

LISP System Implementation By Nils M Holm
Hardcover: $59.90

This book delves straight into the internals of an interactive LISP system. The complete source code is presented and discussed in great detail. Emphasis is on compilation to abstract machine code,... More > but lots of topics will be discussed at length, including: LISP data objects, syntax analysis, closure conversion, lambda lifting, operational semantics, bytecode generation, bytecode interpretation, primitive functions, bootstrapping LISP code, macro expansion, lexical and dynamic binding, tail call elimination, garbage collection, non-local exits, the REPL, reading and printing LISP objects, input and output ports, error handling, heap image files, etc... The C and LISP code in this book is comprehensible rather than clever. Lots of design decisions, background information, and historical tidbits are provided.< Less
