Torque brings together a diverse collection of 
essays and artworks, many newly commissioned, 
that reflect upon the plasticity of the brain, 
the adaptability of technology and the 
malleability of language, and their twisting 
together through past, present and future 

The contributors and their work each offer unique 
models of navigating this territory, making their 
own artefacts, writing their own scripts, forging 
critical space and examining the blind spots.

The book is the result of a wide range of 
cross-disciplinary conversations, taking place 
across symposia, online forums, live events and 
workshops, produced by the book's editors: Nathan 
Jones and Sam Skinner.

"Torque activities and this publication bravely 
push our boundaries of cognition and thinking, 
through striking essays, tricky concepts, and 
beautiful, arresting imagery."
