Message from the Unseen World

 

 

Located in Paddington West London, It celebrates the life and work of Alan Turing who was born in Paddington and is best known for the role he played in breaking the enigma code during the second world war.

 

 

The piece was curated by Futurecity and devised by United Visual Artists (“UVA”) in collaboration with Hackney based poet Nick Drake. Nick Drakes verse depicts Turing speaking posthumously about his life.

The installation comprises aluminium panels perforated by holes and LED’s which display extracts from Turing’s ground breaking “Computing Machinery and Intelligence” in patterns based on the Baudot code.Led-panel
As the LED’s are illuminated they reveal words and verses from Drakes poem, with the display controlled by an algorithm which experiments with different combinations of letters and words.
