Huxley, R. 'Observable Universe', Footnotes, Oficina de Disseny, Barcelona
'Placed either at the end of the page, a chapter or a book, footnotes affect the body of a text without being within it. From the margins, footnotes operate as powerful tools to unwrap and expand a key concept, context, give space to a shadowy information, to expose a methodological approach, highlight a discovered source, acknowledge an external contribution, set the limits of a text, redirect the reader, and more. By inverting the figure-ground relation, we aim to give space to material that keeps haunting our research projects from the outside.'

Logistical Nightmares, Goldsmiths Reader. Contributor. Accompaniment to FUTURELAND film.

LUMEN
I am artist in Lumen, an art and science collective based in St John on Bethnal Green Church, a 19th century building designed by Sir John Soane. Our studio is located in The Crypt, a unique cavernous space which we use throughout the year to curate talks, seminars, science fairs, exhibitions and other unique events. We work with a number of high profile organisations including Impossible Project, The Art of Dining, British Science Association, International Space University and more in the realm of art or science, on commissions, seminars and exhibitions.
