Torque brings together a diverse collection of essays and artworks, many
newly commissioned, 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.
The book 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.
