Tributes to cryptanalysts

Earlier on cp4space, I mentioned how there were a couple of planned tributes to Alan Turing and Bill Tutte. Subsequently, both of these projects have since been completed.

Firstly, the premiere of A Man From The Future was performed by the Pet Shop Boys at the BBC Proms. An excerpt, entitled He Dreamed Of Machines, is available on YouTube:

This single is due to appear in the forthcoming biographical film, The Imitation Game.

Similarly, the Bill Tutte memorial has now been unveiled. The main sculpture is an arrangement of panels inspired by punched card, which display an image of Tutte when viewed from the correct perspective:

This is part of a larger initiative designed to increase awareness of W. T. Tutte through various events and a local scholarship.
