John Lansdown and the Genesis of Computer Art

Tuesday 12 December 2006

Speaker: Dr. Nicholas Lambert, Birkbeck College

Cat Hill Campus: Room 137
Middlesex University

John Lansdown was a founder member of the CAS and the pioneer after whom the Lansdown Centre is named.

To date, the history of computer graphics has tended to be dominated by the record of American contributors, but in the CACHe project, Nick and his colleagues have revealed the history of the UK contribution in which John Lansdown was a key figure. Nick will look at several early articles John Lansdown wrote in the 1960s-70s and consider how clearly he foresaw the potentials and development of modern computer art.

A joint meeting between the Lansdown Centre at Middlesex University and the Computer Arts Society.

The campus is a simple Tube ride from central London, and within easy reach of the M25. Location in Google Maps:

Admission is free.
