Charlie Tweed presents a film and performative lecture developed from his recent EarthArt Fellowship at Bristol University. The film, Notes From The Subsurface (2020), interrogates deep subsurface environments and the extremophiles that live within them, considering how they can function within challenging conditions. Through sci-fi narratives, it exposes non-human perspectives, drawing out a proposal for future forms of life.
After the film, Charlie will give a live performative lecture that employs speculative fiction to explore key themes from the project.
