The sculpture "Computing a Future" was created by J. Seward Johnson. The idea for the sculpture came from David Grainger, who was familiar with Johnson's work. Mr. Grainger also provided the financial support for acquiring the sculpture. The book, which gives the sculpture its name, is titled "Computing the Future: A Broader Agenda for Computer Science and Engineering."
The sculpture is affectionately known as "Grainger Bob" around campus.
