Picturing the Invisible: Book Launch
12 March 2020, 6-8pm
Red Room, Chelsea College of Arts
As our understanding of the complexity of the world grows incrementally, so does our realisation that issues and problems can rarely be resolved within neat demarcations. Therefore, finding means of communicating across disciplines and fields becomes a priority.
Whilst acknowledging the essential importance of the specialist academic, the capacity to understand other disciplines, their priorities, methodologies and even the language used, can become crucial in being an effective instrument for change.
Join us for the 'Picturing the Invisible' book launch, featuring contributions by members of a one-year AHRC-funded Research Network and invited authors, published by UCL Press. Contributions come from a wide range of disciplines including art and design, architecture, curatorial practice, literature, forensic science, fashion, medical science, psychoanalysis and psychotherapy, philosophy and astrophysics, with a shared interest in exploring how, in each discipline, we strive to find expression for the invisible or unknown.
Core themes that underlie the chapters presented:
· Communication and language
· Absence and Voids
Contributors: Paul Coldwell, Ruth Morgan, Stephan Doering, Mark Emberton and Joseph Norris, Adam Gibson and Tabitha Tuckett, Paul Goodwin, Owen Hopkins, Jo Melvin, Tanja Staehler, Irene Tracey, Susan Tallman, Roberto Trotta.
