The international technology festival Campus Party has commissioned street art containing messages in Morse, JavaScript and Binary codes as part of a ticket giveaway.

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.
