Artist, writer, and self-described experimental philosopher Jonathon Keats talks about his new book, You Belong to the Universe: Buckminster Fuller and the Future. In the book, Jonathon examines some of Fuller’s most well known inventions, like the Dymaxion Car, as well as some obscure ones, like Two-Way TV, to explore how Bucky’s ideas and approach to the world might be put to use in the 21st century.
When he’s not writing books, Jonathon is also an artist in his own right and like Fuller his interested in projects that help us see the world in new and unusual ways. His newest project involves cameras designed to take century long exposures as a way to observe the changes in our cities.
