Project website



This consultancy project aims to create a high-profile multimedia book of invited essays on the possible future of energy and the climate. Contributors will include authors, filmmakers, musicians and futurologists.

Content will be split between paper and screen using the Next Generation Paper platform designed at Surrey and controlled with a fully integrated Magic Bookmark interface. The book is designed for exhibition at the University of Curtin, Perth, in spring 2022 and will also be exhibited in Guildford some time afterwards. It is inspired by Stuart Brand’s 1967 ‘Whole Earth Catalog’, and intended to stimulate the creation of new versions in other cities around the globe. 

The project is funded by Curtin University, including a small consultancy fee of £2,540 to Surrey University for provision of the Magic Bookmark interface. View the Curtin University project page.
