Alan Dix

Director of the Computational Foundry at Swansea University – digital thinker, coast walker, professor, creativity teacher, and researcher in all aspects of the way humans interact with technology and how technology impacts society.

I was born in Cardiff, lived for ten years in Tiree, outermost of the Inner Hebrides, and now live on the West Wales coast.

In 2013 I walked the entire perimeter of Wales, one of only around a dozen people who have done this. Over one thousand miles of mountain and bog, city and village, cliff and beach through some of the wealthiest and poorest parts of the country, whole days hardly meeting a soul and yet never far from the traces of past human activity from the bronze age to the industrial revolution and beyond.

    Account of my three month walk around the periphery of Wales: borderland and coastline, in 2013 – partly personal journey, partly research exploration, partly philosophical contemplation.
