There are many possible paths to begin to decipher the complex and rich web of relationships between science, technology, design and art in Latin America. If we think of privileged routes in the 20th century to explore this framework, the history of cybernetics is undoubtedly one of those. It has taken a long time for the legacy of cybernetics in different Latin American countries to be given the historical importance it deserves. However, at this moment we have an interesting series of investigations and publications that emerge clearing the tip of the iceberg of said history.
This conversation will be a preparation for the panel History of Cybernetics within the framework of the Latin American Forum at ISEA2012 International Symposium of Electronic Arts in Albuquerque, New Mexico, United States. The panel will be attended by doctors Eden Medina, Susana Quintanilla and Pablo Colapinto.
