Part 4 of the Global Art Forum, an event designed to explore the ways in which artists, writers, technologists, historians, musicians and thinkers have imagined, and are shaping, the future.
Sophia al Maria's time-travelling alter ego SFW makes pilgrimages to desert petroglyphs and other sites of deep human history in Namibia, Oman and Australia. Points of interest include the desert as time machine, as future dream and as Tatooine.
