Description

This monument to computing consists of three pieces of lanhelin with each of the three types of conical section cut in them (Ellipse/Parabola/Hyperbola) as a reference too Turing. It is surrounded by a 17 sided pentagon to recognsie the work of Gauss. It was chosen due to the proximity of Adastrial Park, as Colossus, regarded as the first operational digital computer was constructed by what is now BT Labs, at their previous site at Dollis Hill

Would love to know who the artist is for this, if anyone can find a reference
