Alexandra Carr on the Radio and Conference Updates

Longtime Ordered Universe collaborator Alexandra Carr was recently on BBC Radio 3’s Free Thinking programme to discuss the work she undertook during her Leverhulme Trust supported Sculpting with Light residency at Durham University.

The title of the Free Thinking episode was ‘The In Between’ and Alexandra was joined by neuroscientist Dean Burnett, award-winning poet Vahni Capildeo, writer and walker of London and other wastelands, Iain Sinclair, and the philosopher, Emily Thomas. The episode was presented by Durham University’s Eleanor Rosamund Barraclough whose own work has explored themes of space and place, particularly in the context of medieval Scandinavia and Arctic studies.
