A virtual art gallery that documents our love affair with computers.
Computer Love tells the story of our love affair with computers and how it changed our human relationships.
This virtual gallery space showcases the work of local computer artists and the latest research from the University’s Department of Computer Science.
Computers of the past are lovingly recreated as 3D sculpture. You can even get an insight into the technology that makes the artwork, and the gallery, possible.
Nick Bax was a designer in the music industry before joining The Designers Republic (TDR). In 2007, he founded Humanstudio (aka Human), a multi-disciplinary design practice. With TDR and Human, Nick has exhibited in Barcelona, London, New York, Paris and Tokyo.
Guy Brown is a senior lecturer in the Department of Computer Science. His main research interest is computational hearing, a field that aims to build computer models of the human ear in order to improve speech recognition systems. Guy is also interested in music technology, mobile computing and computer graphics. And he’s a pretty good photographer.
Steve Maddock is a senior lecturer in the same department as Guy. His research interests include computer facial modelling and human figure animation. Steve’s love of computer games technology was inspired by an industrial secondment with Gremlin Interactive in the 90s. He remembers the BBC Micro, fondly.
