Event — Science Poems in London

OK Do and Åh invites you to the Lon­don present­a­tion of the Sci­ence Poems book at Don­lon Books. The even­ing includes a read­ing of ›From Big Bang Machine (with love)‹ sci­ence fic­tion short story by author Maria Can­dia and a drink lab fea­tur­ing chem­ist coats by K.I. Kin­nun­en.
Fol­low­ing the tra­di­tion­al mind­set of sci­ence fic­tion, OK Do’s Sci­ence Poems pro­ject explores the poetry of nat­ur­al sci­ences rather than their logic. A book and an exhib­i­tion on the top­ic were first launched in Par­is in June 2010, after which the book has been trav­el­ling around the world togeth­er with small-scale dis­plays. Com­ing from Hel­sinki and Ber­lin, it reaches its final des­tin­a­tion at Don­lon Books / X Marks the Bök­ship in Lon­don.

The Sci­ence Poems book, edited by OK Do and designed by Åh, fea­tures dis­cus­sions with Marc-Olivi­er Wahler of Pal­ais de Tokyo as well as Anthony Dunne and Fiona Raby from the Roy­al Col­lege of Art. It also includes art­icles about par­al­lel uni­verses, spir­itu­al sci­ence and build­ing an eco­sys­tem at home, a talk with a philo­soph­er of sci­ence, a sci­ence fic­tion short story as well as vari­ous oth­er poet­ic writ­ings and images about sci­ence by OK Do and friends.
