Round Table Discussion
Wednesday 6th December, 7-8.30pm
Venue: THECUBE, Shoreditch, London

Join, Daniel Locke, David Blandy and BBC’s Adam Rutherford, the creative team behind our new epic, graphic novel Out of Nothing as they discuss their collaborative partnership, the formation of the solar system, the death of the last star in the universe and the invention of Hip-Hop.

This is the story of us, a story created Ex Nihilo, from the Big Bang to an imagined future, encompassing thousands of years of science and storytelling and art, so that we might know who we are...

Surreal sequences take us from Gutenberg’s printing press to Tim Berners-Lee’s World Wide Web, via Picasso, Einstein, DJ Kool Herc and more.

Locke and Blandy show how our unique 'Dreaming minds' and basic instinct to observe, record, and connect have been the catalyst for all progress and discovery, in this incredible millennia-spanning graphic novel.
