Adam Nathaniel Furman‘s (Rome Prize-winner in Architecture October 2014– March 2015) project The Roman Singularity is a multi-media exploration in text, computer drawing, animation, hand drawing, and ceramic, creating an an imaginary alternate Rome for the 21st Century; a dream in the mode of Piranesi’s Ichnographiam Campi Martii, a peek out through the other side of Rome’s catastrophic and utterly incomparable reality-bending gravitational field, a new city from which fragments can be seen here in this exhibition. An in-depth presentation of this project can be viewed on his blog: http://theromansingularity.blogspot.it/

The Roman Singularity, il progetto di Adam Nathaniel Furman (Rome Prize-winner in Architecture October 2014– March 2015), è un’indagine multimediale realizzata con testo, disegno a computer, animazione, disegno a mano libera e ceramica, che crea una Roma cartacea del XXI secolo alternativa; un sogno che richiama l’Ichnographiam Campi Martii del Piranesi, e che si affaccia sull’altro lato del catastrofico, e incomparabile campo gravitazionale di Roma, capace di plasmarne la realtà, una nuova città i cui frammenti possono essere avvistati in questa mostra. Un’approfondita presentazione di questo progetto può essere visto sul suo blog: http://theromansingularity.blogspot.it

After only a month at the BSR our award-holders have hit the ground running: many of our Humanities borsisti showcased their research in our day-long workshop A Celebration of Modern Studies; and we look forward to lectures in November from our two current Senior Scholars, Aristotle Kallis (Balsdon Fellow) on 12 November, and Anne Bush (Paul Mellon Centre Rome Fellow) on 19 November.
