Intuition and Ingenuity

Mon 8 Oct – Fri 9 Nov 2012
Intuition and Ingenuity explores the enduring influence of Alan Turing – the father of modern computing - on art and contemporary culture.

The exhibition features a group of outstanding artists, including boredomresearch and Roman Verostko, whose work responds to key themes within Turing’s life and work. 2012 will be the 100th anniversary of the birth of Alan Turing, one of the greatest minds Britain has ever produced. From inventing the digital computer and helping to decode the German Enigma machine, to founding the science of artificial intelligence, the world today would be a very different place without his ideas.

This exhibition brings together important artists from digital art pioneers to emerging contemporary practitioners, including Roman Verostko, William Latham, Ernest Edmonds, Greg Garvey, Patrick Tresset, Anna Dumitriu and Alex May, with newly commissioned work by boredomresearch and Paul Brown.
