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: Botanical Gardens, Kew - Orchid Selector

The Orchid Selector is a Final year Project being developed by a fellow student for the Botanical Gardens, Kew. The system is a knowledge-base query system, allowing users to identify orchids by describing some prominent features.

I was asked to develop an XHTML front end for the on-line application. The design needed to be flexible to allow for any amount of data, which would be generated by the AI based back-end, and resemble the exisitng brand developed by the gardens, using the same pallette where possible.

A simple page structure is arranged using CSS to ensure that the page will be presentable at any size or resolution.
