Lectures 2012

Most of my lectures took place in academic environments during the course of 2012. Over seven weeks between October and December 2012 I was again asked to present my lecture series to MA Communication Design students at Central Saint Martins. The themes were Media, Machines, Networks, Spaces, Dreams, Events, Cognition, following the same basic pattern as in previous years, but the lectures were also greatly expanded incorporating screenings of extended movie and documentary clips, breakout discussions and seminars. To expand the depth these still further I also presented a series of ‘Networks’ workshops to students on the Central St Martins MA Innovation Management course. Other lectures were given at Middlesex University and the University of Brighton School of Art. In addition to these I was also invited to speak at the following events:
