ExhibitAdam Summers, a biologist at the University of Washington’s Friday Harbor Labs and consultant on Finding Nemo, teamed up with Sierra Nelson, a poet based in Seattle, to create the exhibition “Cleared: the Art of Science,” which was premiered at the Seattle Aquarium two years ago, in 2014, according to Smithsonian Magazine. An interesting combination of beautiful science imagery and poetry, which was used to caption each image.

Torque brings together a diverse collection of essays and artworks, many newly commissioned for the project, that reflect upon the plasticity of the brain, the adaptability of technology and the malleability of language, and their twisting together through past, present and future cultures. The contributors and their work each offer unique models of navigating this territory, making their own artefacts, writing their own scripts, forging critical space and examining the blind spots.


Torque#1. Mind, Language and Technology is the result of a wide range of cross-disciplinary conversations, taking place across symposia, online forums, live events and workshops, produced by the book’s editors: Nathan Jones and Sam Skinner. According to Professor Mike Stubbs, Artistic Director at FACT Liverpool: “Torque activities and this publication bravely push our boundaries of cognition and thinking, through striking essays, tricky concepts, and beautiful, arresting imagery.”
