Lighthouse presents Progress Bar, a series of events giving insight into the creative practice of contemporary culture’s most exciting names.
This edition of Progress Bar is inspired by Lighthouse’s Wellcome Trust supported graphic novel Out of Nothing. A collaboration between graphic novelist Daniel Locke, artist David Blandy and author, broadcaster and scientist Adam Rutherford, the work traces the journey of a fiery-tempered young girl as she crosses time and space to tell the story of creativity, scientific discovery and human knowledge.
The evening will feature a talk by David Blandy and Daniel Locke about the birth of the solar system, the development of complex life on Earth, taking photographs on other planets, and the first Martians. Joining them will be award-winning comic creator Karrie Fransman who will give insight into her creative process and talk about the books that go into making books. Plus, you’ll get a sneak preview of Out of Nothing’s artwork and David Blandy will play music from the history of hip-hop.
