Turing Centenary 2012: Invitation to New Media Artists Call for Expressions #code #geekgirl

Due 29 July 2011

2012 is the centenary of the birth of Alan Turing, the renowned mathematician, code-breaker and computer pioneer. This will be marked by an extensive series of events, which is being coordinated by the Turing Centenary Advisory Committee. As Turing worked at the University of Manchester for the last six years of his life, Manchester is one of the two main centres of this events programme – the other being London, where he was born.

The Museum of Science and Industry (MOSI) plans to celebrate the Turing centenary throughout 2012. As Turing was a great innovator, MOSI is keen for its events to feature innovative creative works inspired by Turing and utilising the digital media made possible by the achievements of the early computer pioneers. MOSI invites written expressions of interest in this project which should include a description of the nature of the proposed work, how it links to Turing and the likely hardware requirement.
