Q: Am I insanely happy to have been commissioned to be part of this amazing Event set and resulting book?
“Torque#1. Mind, Language and Technology is the result of a wide range of cross-disciplinary conversations, taking place across symposia, online forums, live events and workshops, produced by the book’s editors: Nathan Jones and Sam Skinner. The book brings together a diverse collection of essays and artworks, many newly commissioned for the project, that reflect upon the plasticity of the brain, the adaptability of technology and the malleability of language, and their twisting together through past, present and future cultures. According to Professor Mike Stubbs, Artistic Director at FACT Liverpool: “Torque activities and this publication bravely push our boundaries of cognition and thinking, through striking essays, tricky concepts, and beautiful, arresting imagery.” Contributors include Lambros Malafouris, Emil Alzamora, Anna Munster, Benedict Drew, Esther Leslie, Cécile B Evans, Hannah Proctor, Nathan Jones, Stephen Fortune, Dennis Oppenheim, Lawrence Abu Hamdan, Holly Pester, Geoff Cox, Alex McLean, Kate Sicchio, Karl Heinz Jeron, Mez Breeze, Robert Sheppard, Chris Boyd, Imogen Stidworthy.” – Domenico Quaranta
