News Post | Bring The Future by Tim Ratliff

Our series of talks and events on creativity with and within emerging technologies is about to begin with When Up is Down: An introduction to working in Zero G!

On 5th August 2015 Nicola Triscott and Nahum Mantra from The Arts Catalyst will be visiting us at Resort Studios in Margate to discuss the organisations' work at Star City and the pieces that have been produced in reaction to experiencing time without gravity.

We'll be following this up in the evening with the Hello Print Drawing Club, where we'll be inviting everyone to draw using a secret (and extremely low tech) sensory distortion device.

A Little About The Series

We have an optimistic outlook here at RL-a and welcome the strange and the new with open minded enthusiasm, loving nothing more than to dream. However like all good Architects we are also pragmatists, and this leads us to ask how tech developments can be used? What are the benefits? And how do they affect our relationship with our environment?

For us Architecture is all about experience. The emotional and physical journey through our buildings, streets, squares, basements and towers is a journey through countless people's interpretation of our world. What interests us is what happens to that interpretation when unprecedented moments are experienced; what questions can be asked that couldn't be conceived before? The potential for the creation of the previously unimaginable is very exciting to us and we hope you'll join us down by the sea for some good old fashioned future watching.
