William Latham

William Latham: Mutator 2 is an exhibition at Centrespace, Visual Research Centre at DJCAD running from 1 November – 31 January. With a preview on 31 October and an artist’s talk on 13 November, there’s no better way to engage with this pioneering figure of UK computer art in his first solo Scottish exhibition.

Originally an artist, Latham trained at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Royal College of Art. After moving into computers and working as a Research Fellow at IBM, he founded highly-successful games development company Computer Artworks Ltd. Most recently he serves as Professor of Computer Art at Goldsmiths.

At the exhibition, see interactive video projection Mutator 2 Triptych. Spanning three screens, the installation blends the organic and the electronic. Engage with the work further by exploring drawings and prints made by Latham during the creative process.
