Our Dreams Change, We Don't, is the first in a new series of short books transcribing lectures from The Bartlett's International Lecture Series.
The book explores our relationships with the notions of home, machines and the future. Drawing on her research into cybernetics and art, Jasia observes that ‘the animation of the inanimate, and the desire to communicate with machines, represent both our dreams and our limitations’. Bringing together wide-ranging references from children’s literature to contemporary art, Jasia speculates on the fading boundaries between humans and technology.
The book will be presented by Frederic Migayrou, Chair and Bartlett Professor of The Bartlett School of Architecture, and will be available to read online for free and to buy in print at the launch.
Jasia’s original lecture was given at The Bartlett International Lecture Series in 2017.
Jasia Reichardt is an editor, curator and writer, whose seminal works include the 1968 Institute of Contemporary Arts Exhibition and the accompanying book, Cybernetic Serendipity. She is interested in the intersections of art and other fields, including science, literature and technology.
