Geoff Davis (b. 1957) is a generative artist who founded the Micro Arts Group in 1984 with the goal of supporting artists and making computer art accessible to the public, as inspired by the London experimental film and video scene.
Geoff Davis is an artificial intelligence researcher in the ethical use of generated text at the University of the Arts London (UAL). He has worked for the UK’s innovation trust Nesta, developed ‘eco’ buildings, and was a founding member of the UK’s Sustainable Development Commission (SDC). His fiction has been published by PEN International.
With Micro Arts, Geoff Davis released a series of computer-generated conceptual art pieces and story text generators on data cassettes and Prestel TV Teletext. Davis also provided a forum for computer artists and musicians with a print magazine, articles, and downloadable software on Micronet 800 on Prestel.
Micro Arts was revived in 2019 by the Computer Arts Archive (part of the Computer Arts Society CAS and BCS) and has had exhibitions in Leicester and London, UK.
