Algorithmic Photography exhibition lecture

For the launch of his Algorithmic Photography art exhibition for the Computer Arts Society, Alex May gave a lecture that explains the origin of the process, how it has developed over the past eight years, and where it will be going in the future.

The exhibition is on now in London at the British Computer Society headquarters in Moorgate until May 31st, at which point it will travel to Leicester until August 2024.

Algorithmic Photography is a digital technique that records a sequential period of time and presents us with a view of reality where we can trace the branching paths of ants nests, the exploding murmuration of starlings, and the brightly coloured swarming of people as they navigate architecture.
