About the speakers

Andy Lomas

Andy Lomas is a computational artist, mathematician and Emmy award-winning supervisor of computer-generated effects. His artwork explores how complex sculptural forms can be created emergently by simulating growth processes. Inspired by the work of Alan Turing, D'Arcy Thompson and Ernst Haeckel, it exists at the boundary between art and science. In 2014, his work Cellular Forms won The Lumen Prize Gold Award.

Brendan Dawes

Brendan Dawes (b. 1966) is a UK-based generative artist. By means of code, data, and generative systems, Dawes’ interest in human connection is revealed across electronic objects, screens, physical sculpture and interactive installation. His artwork,‘Three One Three’ was shortlisted for the Lumen Prize in 2021.

Nye Thompson

Nye Thompson (she/her b. 1966) is an artist turned software designer turned artist. Her work spans image-making, video and sculptural installation, film-making, archiving, mapping, experimental software architectures and process-based performance. Thompson and UBERMORGEN were recipients of the Lumen Prize Gold Award 2021 for their short film UNINVITED.
