Navigating the unknown

Attended the launch of the ResCen book 'Navigating the Unknown' - an inspirational work of art in its own write (as John Lennon once put it).. as well as a collection of essays, both visual and linguistic. The importance of the work and the research project that produced it can not be over estimated. These are essays in the truest sense, and about creativity - what it is, how it can be deployed through events, space, time and activity, and why it is important.

Creativity is a powerful tool for making society, not just a reflection of it.
Science and technology, and their outputs in innovation can supply the tools of progress; but it is art and creativity (applied imagination) that guide us in their use, humanely and for our common well-being.
