Andy Lomas is a British mathematician and contemporary digital artist with a special interest in morphogenesis using mathematical morphology and an Emmy award winning supervisor of computer generated effects. He is currently a visiting lecturer at UCL The Bartlett School of Architecture and a visiting research fellow at Goldsmiths University of London.
Andy Lomas’ Morphogenetic Creations explore using digital simulation of morphogenetic processes to create complex alien but familiar, beautiful and disturbing forms. Inspired by the work of Alan Turing, D’Arcy Thompson and Ernst Haeckel, it exists at the boundary between art and science. He has had work exhibited in over 50 joint and solo exhibitions, including The Royal Society, Kinetica, SIGGRAPH, the Japan Media Arts Festival, the Ars Electronica Festival, the Los Angeles Center for Digital Art, the Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporaneo, Watermans and the ZKM. He has work in the collection at the V&A, and was selected by Saatchi Online to contribute to a special exhibition in the Zoo Art Fair at the Royal Academy of Arts. In 2014 Cellular Forms won The Lumen Prize Gold Award, as well as the Best Artwork Award from the A-Eye exhibition at AISB-50, and an Honorary Mention from the jury at the Ars Electronica Festival.
