Andy Lomas’ Morphogenetic Creations explore digital simulation of morphogenetic processes to create complex alien but familiar, beautiful and disturbing forms. Inspired by the work of Alan Turing, D’Arcy Thompson and Ernst Haeckel, it exists at the boundary between art and science.
He has had work exhibited in over 50 joint and solo exhibitions, including Kinetica, SIGGRAPH, the Japan Media Arts Festival, the Ars Electronica Festival, the Los Angeles Center for Digital Art, the Centro Andaluz de Arte Contemporaneo, Watermans and the ZKM.

In 2014 Cellular Forms won The Lumen Prize Gold Award, as well as the Best Artwork Award from the A-Eye exhibition at AISB-50, and an Honorary Mention from the jury at the Ars Electronica Festival.
