Bath student wins ‘Art of IT’ competition

Daniel Goldstein, a first year computer science student at the University of Bath, has won an international competition to find the most original and thought-provoking illustration of Information Technology (IT).

Computing students from across the world were asked by the British Computer Society (BCS) to create a picture on a blank postcard showing their feelings about IT either as a picture, statement or illustration.

Daniel’s postcard shows a computer-generated image of DNA entwined with electrical wiring, questioning whether our evolution has become inseparable from technology.

Daniel, who won a digital camcorder plus student membership to the BCS for a year, said: “My idea was to explore the relationship between evolution, biology and technology.

“I’m quite interested in video editing and I’m looking forward to using my new camera and learning more about editing.”

His winning postcard is featured in the March issue of ITNow, the BCS’ magazine which goes out to over 50,000 members, universities and companies across the UK.

David Clarke, BCS chief executive says: “The standard of entries was extremely high and it was a difficult decision to select the overall winner.

“I chose Daniel’s image because I felt it offered a clever and thought provoking view of IT and how it has become an important and large part of our everyday life.”

Entries came from UK students and those from overseas studying the BCS professional exams.
