Alun Ward studied Theology and Religious Studies at Cambridge University before taking up post-graduate work in Fine Art at Farnham.
He concentrated on painting and graphic work from 1994, and in 1997 founded the internet arts collective, 3jay. This began an interest in the use of the internet to disseminate art works. Fly Me to the Moon, first shown in installation at the OX1 Festival in Oxford in October 2001, is his first time-based piece, and developed directly out of his painting work. A particular interest lies in questioning how the viewer interprets a work of art based on contextual clues. Other current projects include a series of shadow drawings and a short animated film based on the tale of Peter Schlemihl, 'the man who sold his shadow', and a continuing web project based on the asteroid discoveries of the nineteenth century painter and astronomer, Hermann Goldschmidt.
