On February 26th – March 1st Liam Young will be speaking and running a masterclass at the Sonic Acts 2015 festival: The Geologic Imagination.Inspired by geosciences, the 2015 Sonic Acts Festival zooms in on planet Earth. Fundamental to The Geologic Imagination is the thesis that we live in a new geological epoch, the Anthropocene. Human activity has irreversibly changed the composition of the atmosphere, the oceans, and even the Earth’s crust. Humanity has become a geological force. Other speakers include Timothy Morton, Graham Harman, Alan Weisman, Jeff Vandermeer, Ben Bratton and many more.
Liam will also be running a masterclass titled Reimagining the Present, Scenes from a film that doesn’t exist that will explore traditional special effects tropes from science fiction and introduce the use of entry-level CGI, special effects, post-production film and animation techniques.
