 IF YOU CAN’T DROP IN TO THE SURF ROOM AT FULTON HOUSE TODAY YOU CAN EMAIL YOUR CONTRIBUTION TO IMAGINEDFUTURESUNKNONWLANDS@GMAIL.COM OR TWEET @fern_thomas AND #TimeTravellingVessel

YOUR CONTRIBUTION COULD BE A WORD OR AN IMAGINED OBJECT, SOMETHING THAT NO LONGER EXISTS OR IS YET TO EXIST!

more information below:

The Time Travelling Deep Sea Exploration Vessel, chartered by the Institute for Imagined Futures & Unknown Lands, is an exciting new development in time travel and future preservation.

Aboard the vessel will be housed the most significant, dynamic and challenging representations of research necessary for the benefit of the future. The vessel will also act as a living and working area for up to 100 people.

Researchers are invited to offer suggestions for what they think is needed for the future. This can range from specimens, certain kinds of knowledge or particular kinds of technology. Maybe you want to suggest what sort of spaces are needed, the different functions of the vessel, the material it is made out of, or the kind of living and interactive spaces required for the people aboard. It is probable that your suggestion will be connected to your current research.

It may be that your suggestion is at risk of not existing in the future and so putting it aboard the vessel will guarantee its future existence. Or perhaps your suggestion does not yet exist yet as it may be, for example, bound by time and space or gravity, but please be free and experimental with your ideas in relation to what you think we need for the future as we at the Institute for Imagined Futures & Unknown Lands are committed to making it happen.

There will also be an on board library and so we also invite participants to suggest a book for the library, this can be of any discipline or genre.

There are no weight or size restrictions on board, and indeed, your suggestion may be something that is invisible, but everything will be accommodated for. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity (unless you are already experienced in the art of time travel and we have met before.)

Artist in Residence at Bridging the Gaps, Swansea University

From September the Institute for Imagined Futures & Unknown Lands will be Artist in Residence for Bridging the Gaps at Swansea University. The Institute will engage with the research at Swansea University, developing a new interdisciplinary project. Updates on the research undertaken will be available on this site.
