by John Angel Rodriguez
Curator Grey Cube Projects

The transition towards a planetary civilization presentation is part of an ongoing research PhD project that John Angel Rodriguez is carrying out at the Goldsmiths University of London. His research question is about how we can produce new knowledge through curatorial practice while bearing in mind the transformations and discoveries born out of the molecular revolution in the context of the fourth industrial revolution. The observations made both at the macro and the micro levels of the quantum universe have offered us a chance to rewrite our scientific methods.

This presentation includes photographs, moving images and artist websites, His talk also will offer an insight into Grey Cube Projects’ methodology of work as a curatorial platform.
