Intuition and ingenuity

Friends of Imperica Patrick Tresset and Anna Dumitriu have started a campaign on Indiegogo to fund and promote Intuition and Ingenuity, a touring art exhibition based on the life of Alan Turing and taking its name from Turing's own writings on mathematical reasoning.

2012 has been designated Alan Turing Year, marking 100 years since the birth of the great man (23/06/12 to be precise).

In addition to Anna and Patrick, a number of other artists are part of the exhibition, including Roman Verostko and Boredom Research. Overall, the exhibition aims to investigate Turing's enduring influence on art and contemporary culture.

The exhibition is scheduled to stop in February at this year's Kinetica, and at the V&A Digital Design Weekend later in the summer.

If you would like the exhibition to stop somewhere near to you, as well as have the chance for Tresset's robot Paul to sketch your face for a one-off picture, then visit the Indiegogo page to make a donation.

We are going to be covering a wide range of events related to Alan Turing year, so do look out for those across 2012.
