Novel Materials

Speaker: Robert Frith

06:00 PM | Cinema | English

Authors create worlds full of details. They conjure the sights, sounds, textures and smells of our imagination. Materials and technologies are played with, used and put into use by the fictional societies created by the writer. These speculations of alternative realities are completely safe, a testing ground for how things might be or could be. Robert will tell the stories of these fictional materials and how they are now the novel materials of daily reality.

This is what happened to the speaker, who will talk about his blunders after being struck by a series of intellectual leaps he did not consider.
