The Philosophy of the Overlooked: String
£10 / £9 Concessions / £8 ICA Members.
A series exploring the structures of lived experience and modes of human existence. What can be learned from other people's experience of things we rarely think about? The seventh event in the series focuses on string: tying, knotting, measuring, adorning, playing. What are the origins of the modest string? Does an illlusionist use string the same way a musician does? Does a physicist think of string in similar terms to an artist?
Speakers: Cornelia Parker, visual artist; Mark Messenger, head of strings at the Royal Academy of Music; David S Berman, reader in theoretical physics at Queen Mary University. Chair: Martine Rouleau, London Consortium.
There will be a demonstration by John van der Put, award-winning contemporary magician and co-founder of standnotamazed theatre company.
