climate and old lace

Description
The title references both the classic play ‘Arsenic and old lace’ (an apt reference to the climate dilemma) and Ada Lovelace. The painting is a self-portrait as Ada Lovelace. The paintings lyrics reference Lovelace who ‘cracked the algorithmic dawn’ by realising that a simple algorithm could allow a ‘machine to think’. Lovelace created the first algorithm in 1837. Her beautiful deduction lay dormant for 100 years until Alan Turning realised the profound ramifications of her discovery. Her type of human intelligence which combined ‘science and imagination’ can perhaps be applied to solve the climate dilemma. “Why did Lovelace and Turing die as hopelessly broken beings? Does the human race destroy its geniuses for the same reason it is destroying itself?”
