The art of knowledge

When Keith Tyson won Britain's Turner prize last year, one critic described him as "the wacky boffin of art". Tyson first caught the public eye with his Art Machine, a computer programme that generates random proposals for works of art. Yet he insists he is "traditional".

While his creations are overwhelmingly inspired by science, he says they are not vehicles for scientific theories. Rather, he tells Michael Bond, they are a way of navigating through the mass of scientific data that risks overwhelming us.
