Title: Alan Turing Looking

A similar nine panel newsprint version of this work is held in the Arts Council Collection, London, and was recently exhibited in the ‘I Want I Want! Art and Technology’ exhibition at Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery. Michael describes the gold ‘eyes’ that pop out of the portrait as a play on the idea of looking using symbolism from cartoons like Ren and Stimpy.  

Alan Turing is regarded as the father of modern computer science and worked as a code breaker at Bletchley Park, the UK’s main decryption centre during WW2. He was shamefully ignored by the British establishment and killed himself after being convicted of being a homosexual and ‘gross indecency with a male’ in March 1952.
