is the personal website and portfolio of Ben Sekulowicz-Barclay, a web-developer and student at the University of Surrey, England.

The work on this site demonstrates my experience as a programmer and developer for the World Wide Web. My academic projects in particular feature creative and experimental work, testing theories and concepts I have learnt from my studies.

My work, (and especially this site) reflect my interest in a semantic and structured Internet. It focuses on maximising the use of compliant mark-up, and the strengths of web standards.

Project: Automatic Menu Generation

The automatic and random generation of menu items was an experiment in drawing navigation items and positioning them at random on a web page using CSS absolute positioning.

The system was developed to demonstrate the ability of PHP to dynamically connect an arbitary number of nodes using the built in graphics library. The script was a prototype for generating network layout diagrams dynamically for the world wide web.

The prototype system is available to view at Future versions of the system will feature nested nodes, and increased collision detection and prevention.
