Drawing Theory: Time and Futures


Barbara Adam and Seth Oliver

Great Expectations: Arts and the Future

International Conference, European Research Network on the Sociology of the Arts, University of Surrey

1–3 September, 2010

In this collaborative work, social theorist Barbara Adam and sculptor Seth Oliver used visible means to render the implicit tangible. This involved them in new forms of communication and reflections on the creative process, non-representation, communication of complexity and the role of responsibility. The work focused on sustainability, outlining approaches to sustainability and the future and developing a distinction between ‘present future’ and ‘future present’.
