Technology festival and school for code-cracking Campus Party has commissioned wall art on the streets of London, Birmingham and Bristol that challenges members of the public to break codes to be in with a chance of winning tickets.

The geeky graffiti includes lines of code alongside some of the world’s greatest technological minds, including British mathematician, logician, cryptanalyst, and computer scientist Alan Turing.

Included in the street art is undeciphered Morse code, JavaScript and Binary code hiding secret messages in a bid to get young people interested in coding.

Holly Marshall, Campus Party manager at O2, commented: “Deciphering code has long been a role for some of the greatest minds the world has ever produced.

“At Campus Party we want to bring skills such as code breaking to the masses, broadening the digital skill base in the process. This unique graffiti gives a taste of what we can expect to see during the festival, whilst providing a talking point that resonates and intrigues our key tech-savvy community.”
