On Wednesday January 15th at 5.30pm on Resonance 104.4 FM and DAB, Architecture Culture: Utopias / Dystopias
In this episode of Resonance’s monthly show on how Architecture and the built environment is represented in Culture, Alex Fitch talks to artist Toby Melville-Brown and author Emma Jane Unsworth about their depictions of the city. Toby discusses his Tower series of prints which envision fantastical skyscrapers that absorb existing elements of urban architecture, and his exhibition at The Book Club, Hoxton – ‘The Future was Big’ – which contains sci-fi book cover illustrations of retro futures.
Emma talks about her Manchester set novel Animals, and writing the screenplay for its film adaption – which relocates the drama to Dublin – in which two young women explore life in the modern city, with drinks, drugs and toxic relationships.
Animals is available now on Blu-Ray / DVD / VOD, and ‘The Future Was Big’ is on display until Feb 16th at The Book Club, 100–106 Leonard Street, EC2A 4RH
