Dr. Nicholas Lambert, Birkbeck College

The Lansdown Centre, in association with the Computer Arts Society, presents a lecture celebrating John Lansdown's contribution to the field.

John Lansdown (1929-1999) was the pioneer after whom the Lansdown Lecture series 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 Lambert and his colleagues have revealed the history of the UK contribution in which John Lansdown was a key figure. An active early member of the Computer Arts Society, John pioneered the use of computing in architecture, dance, surface design, animation and in digital art per se, not just as a tool but as a generative system. He also led the group at Middlesex University to become the research centre it is today.

Nick will look at John Lansdown's thought in the 1960s-70s and reveal how clearly he foresaw the potentials and development of modern computer art.
