Presentation

Overview

Art has long been cherished as a vital frame for unrestrained reflection upon contemporary life. In the post-industrial era however, complex tools, formal languages and hidden infrastructure increasingly influence how we communicate, move and remember; an inextricable part of our Environment. So it follows that to ignore the languages and ideas that comprise engineering – from Computer Networking and Programming, BioTechnology to Electronics – is to become unable to describe, and thus critically engage, the world we live in.

 

In this lecture Julian will introduce projects and interventions that foreground Engineering, rather than Art, in the creative and critical frame, offering important insights into the hidden machinations and power struggles within our engineered environment.
