History Talks! Ghosted: The Horton Principle

“Ghosting,” where one breaks off all communication and contact without justification, is a commonplace phenomenon now in 2019 and we wonder: is it possible to ghost a built environment? Have we ghosted Horton Plaza?
Join us on Wednesday, November 13th at 7 PM for our next “History Talks!” Lecture with guest curators of our upcoming exhibit: Ghosted: The Horton Principle, Jason Araújo and Philip Salata!

The Horton Principle is a concept that comes to us from the world of cryptography, the study and practice of secure communication. The principle is that if you truly wish to understand a message you must pay attention to not just what is being said, but also just as importantly to what is meant. Crack the code, solve the mystery. The Horton Principle encourages us to enter this exhibit not as passive observers but as active participants.

Location: Gaslamp Museum at the Davis-Horton House’s Mary Joralmon Gallery: 410 Island Avenue, San Diego, CA 92101.

History Talks! is a monthly lecture series presented by the Gaslamp Museum at the Davis-Horton House. Each month a local historian or specialist will delve into topics related to San Diego and the Davis-Horton House to bring a unique glimpse into the history of our city.
November 13th, 2019 at 7pm. Lectures are free for Members, $5 non-members.
