S c e n o g r a p h y : The design and implementation of the 2015 Transformation Marathon scenography, in collaboration with Serpentine Galleries, London. This design was to translate the ethos of the Marathon under the theme of Transformation. The scenography aims to contextualise the body within systems of information : media . text . image

S p e a k e r : In collaboration with design critic Alice Rawsthorn, design strategist Hilary Cottam + designer Christien Meindertsma

Leading writers, thinkers, artists, musicians, film-makers and scientists explore ideas around change, evolution and metamorphosis over 24 hours.    

The Marathon explore[s] transgender politics, pharmacology and shifting social attitudes; adaptation and the environment; the transformative potential of micro-politics as well as changes in art, literature and design; and the futurology of cyborgs, bio-engineering and artificial intelligence. In its 10th year, the Marathon also reflects on the transformation of the art institution, in a special section co-curated with curator and historian Dorothea Von Hantelmann and artist Tino Seghal.
