A new kind of street art featuring coded messages is emerging across the UK in anticipation of international technology festival Campus Party, also known as ‘Glastonbury for Geeks.’ The renowned event commissioned the series in celebration of the 75th anniversary of the team that went on to break the Enigma code and as a method to build buzz leading up to festival, which will take place during the first week of September at London’s O2 center.

The complex street art includes Morse, JavaScript and Binary codes, ready to be decoded by tech-savvy viewers, alongside images of coding celebrities Alan Turing, Samuel Morse and Tim Berners-Lee. Those who successfully decode the messages and enter the correct response on the Campus Party website will be entered to win two free tickets to the technology festival. The works are appearing in various cities across the country, including London, Manchester and Birmingham, throughout the month of August, and are also available to view (and decode) on the Campus Party website.

Campus Party was founded in 1997 and has developed a cult-like following among “Campuseros” (described by the organization as hackers, developers, gamers and technophiles). At the upcoming festival, over 10,000 participants will have access to more than 100 speakers and will have the opportunity to collaborate with their peers in workshop sessions over the course of five days.
