Description

The Question Concerning Technology | Crosby Beach

Thursday 23rd November, 10.30am - 4.30pm

Facilitated by Sarah Hymas

Day one of the Clusters & Entanglement modes of Tracing Space Reading Project

We will spend the day walking Crosby Beach, exploring the convergence of text, place and experience; the interaction between imagination, the collective and matter. This will be followed by more in-depth discussions and creative reflections in St Nicholas Church. The day aims to encourage embodiment of philosophical and creative thought and action, and is open to all PGRs who have an interest in collaboration as process and creativity as research.

Martin Heidegger ‘The Question Concerning Technology’
