Symposium: What You Don’t See



What You Don’t See

Save the Date
Saturday 12 October 2019
The What You Don’t See symposium brings together artists, designers, scientists, poets and theorists to reflect on the implications and possibilities of darkness: from dark matter to blackness, from blackouts to burnouts, from night to day, from microbes to stars. The notion of darkness is often understood as the lack of illumination or absence of light, yet in this conversation it will be considered in its entanglement with the economy, ecology, health, technology and culture.
Confirmed participants include:
