    Paul Johnson in conversation with
    Timothy Morton
  • 21 March 2015, 2.00pm

For this event, Paul Johnson will be discussing his Focal Point Gallery exhibition with professor Timothy Morton.

Timothy Morton is Professor and Rita Shea Guffey Chair in English at Rice University, Texas. A member of the object-oriented philosophy movement, Morton's work explores the intersection of object-oriented thought and ecological studies. He coined the term 'hyperobjects', to explain objects so massively distributed in time and space as to transcend localisation, such as climate change and styrofoam.
