The very notion of a collaboration tends to get sidelined. Rarely are lessons given on 'how to collaborate'. Yet Collaborations, especially the interdisciplinary kind, remain one of the most challenging ways of working. Get insight into the collaborative process of an interdisciplinary study of Carbon Nanotubes Entanglement- with Ayen Kuol as the artist, Blake Bathman the Poet and Josef Velten the scientist.


Dive into a 3 part poetic landscape that both investigates and celebrates the growth and entanglement of carbon nanotubes. A result of the collaboration between Artist, Poets and scientist.

Poems featured are :

'I remember'- By Blake Bathman, featuring video installation by Kylee Hong

'Entangled Dance'- By Ayen Kuol

C is for Carbon - by Ayen Kuol


The very notion of a collaboration tends to set sidelined. Rarely are lessons given on 'how to collaborate'. Yet Collaborations, especially the interdisciplinary kind, remain one of the most challenging ways of working. Get insight into the collaborative process of an interdisciplinary study of Carbon Nanotubes Entanglement- with Ayen Kuol as the artist, Blake Bathman the Poet and Josef Velten the scientist.


Join Ayen Kuol and Josef Velten as they reflect on examples in human history, and ponder the question, “Is Culture a Technology?” Can culture be designed?

This podcast is intended to incite deeper thinking on the subject.
