Research output: Non-textual outputExhibition


Intuition and Ingenuity is a group exhibition that 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, 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 produced. Between inventing the digital computer and helping to decode the German Enigma machine, to founding the science of artificial intelligence, the world today would have been a very different place without his ideas.His work on morphogenesis (what makes organisms grow in particular shapes) and the now famous “Turing Test” for machine intelligence have captured the imagination of artists for decades.This exhibition, which takes its name from Turing’s own writing, brings together a number of important artists from digital art pioneers to emerging contemporary artists, including Roman Verostko, William Latham, Ernest Edmonds, Greg Garvey, Sue Gollifer, Patrick Tresset, Anna Dumitriu and Alex May with newly commissioned work by boredomresearch and Paul Brown.Intuition and Ingenuity is touring during Alan Turing Year, throughout the UK. It is curated by Sue Gollifer, Nick Lambert and Anna Dumitriu.
