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: Image Retrieval by Colour

This system was developed as part of the Multimedia Information Systems module for my degree at the University of Surrey. It was developed with three fellow students.

The academic protype automatically analyses submitted images and creates metadata describing their colour content. This is stored in discretised bins for future searches.

Users can query the image library by one, two or three colours, with a colour percentage for each. Results are returned in order of relevance to the user query.

The prototype system is available to view at This project achieved a first class mark (70% plus) when submitted.
