Cryptography, Espionage, and Psyops

Nick Gessler leads Duke students to discover the history of Cryptography as part of his teaching and research in the field.

Artist's statement: 

Duke professor Nick Gessler draws on his vast collection of encryption devices -- dating to the late 1600s -- for his espionage class. His Comlex Systems Lab in Smith Bay 11 contains these devices as well as many more objects of interest to computer historians, anthropologists, and tinkerers. For full story, see Duke Today.
