Electric Bookshop #4

The Electric Bookshop

Wednesday 16th November 2011, 6.30-8pm.
Inspace, 1 Crichton Street, Edinburgh EH8 9AB

Fascinating characters, gripping stories, deadly writing. Blasted Heath are Scotland's newest e-publishing venture and we are joined by founder and publisher Allan Guthrie for a chat about what it takes to get an e-pub start-up off the ground.

We'll also welcome one of our brightest minds, author and bona fide thinker Ewan Morrison. His paper at Edinburgh International Book Festival 'The End Of Books' stirred up great debate amongst the gathered literati. We'll be chatting with him about the price of free culture.

Come for the books; stay for the banter.

Joan Webster is a young middle-class Englishwoman with an ambitious, independent spirit in this classic Powell & Pressburger film. She knows where she's going, or at least she thinks she does.

She travels from her home in Manchester to the Hebrides to marry a very wealthy, but much older man. The weather however takes a turn for the worst delaying the final leg of her journey.

This happened... is a series of events focusing on the stories behind interaction design. Having ideas is easier than making them happen. Each event delves into projects that exist today, how their concepts and production process can help inform future work.

At this Encounter we explore how symmetry surrounds and attracts us: from its presence in art, to the structure of body and brain. Can it influence our lives?

John Starr is a Professor of Ageing at the University of Edinburgh interested in body and brain symmetry during development and how this may impact on later health.

Gavin Evans is recognised for his uncompromising take on photography. His images are brutally direct, visceral in their beauty and underpinned by humour.

At a time of economic crisis and environmental threat, countries everywhere are seeking to address the dual challenges of maximising the economic value of their natural and cultural heritage while protecting and preserving that heritage.

This international conference will focus on the potential created by new technologies for creating high-quality, remote-access visitor experiences for World Heritage Sites and other sites of cultural, historical and natural significance where physical access must be restricted.
