Very honoured to be interviewed by Faculti, a professional and academic research platform based in London, Uk and extremely pleased to share the same space as many thinkers that I admire! Faculti features interviews from top academics from a diverse number of fields and disciplines from Art History to Paleontology, Medicine to Finance and much more.
Inspired by the confirmation of the Higgs Boson particle in March 2013, Faculti contacted Professor John Ellis, the Clerk Maxwell Professor of Theoretical Physics at King’s College London, about making a short film of the groundbreaking news. The Higgs discovery has been called monumental because it confirms the existence of the Higgs field, pivotal to the Standard Model of particle physics. Professor Ellis was able to communicate this information in under three minutes, supporting the statement of another pivotal figure in research science, that of Albert Einstein who said “If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough.”
Also featured is Leca Alexandra Radu, a good friend of mine also doing a PhD in Art History at SOAS. He talks about Japanese spatial imagery on the 17th century. And not to forget, Dr Shane McCausland, who gives a preview on the visual cultures of Yuan China (1271-1368) in lieu of a monograph under contract with Reaktion Books and expected to be published in 2014 or 2015.
