Seeing the invisible: a conversation with Refik Anadol

We’ve had a timing mix-up (iCal time-zone fails). While nominally I’m a day ahead, when Anadol starts describing his work I begin to think I’m living in the past; or, more likely, that he’s occupying a point in future. Maybe he’s been sent back in time to save the planet from machine overlords (that old trope)? No, he seems too nice. Anyone who signs off from an interview by saying, “I hope I haven’t been too dreamy”, has not come back in time to prevent humankind’s destruction.
