British Library Annual Science Event~ Memory Matters.
October 30th 2015 British Library. 7.00-9.30pm.
Nicky Clayton and Clive Wilkins will discuss memory as a shared subjective experience using evidences from science and the arts to explore the complex relationship between memory and human experience. Join them for a fascinating performance incorporating science, magic and the performing arts. With readings taken from The Moustachio Quartet.
CAMBRIDGE FESTIVAL of IDEAS. Of Memories, Mental Time Travel and The Moustachio Quartet~ featuring La Jetée (1962)
Pre-Booking available for this showing of Chris Marker’s 1962 film, ‘La Jetee’ followed by a short talk and discussion of the themes involved with reference to similar ideas expressed in Clive Wilkins’ novels ‘The Moustachio Quartet’. This presentation takes place as part of the Cambridge Festival of Ideas.
The evening is jointly presented by Prof.Nicky Clayton and Clive Wilkins.
There will be a book signing of The Moustachio Quartet following this presentation. The books will be available for purchase on the evening and are also available from WIND on the WIRE Publishing at the discounted publishers price~ or Amazon.co.uk.
Memories are not only about the past, they also affect the future. The lecture includes a full screening followed by a discussion of the film ‘La Jetee’ with further readings taken from ‘The Moustachio Quartet’. Both works explore the shifting nature of memory and our assumptions of how time unfolds.
Not all those contributing and lecturing during the conference week were able to attend the last days excursion to Cordes-sur-ciel unfortunately. The trip proved to be a delightful way to round off an intense week of exploration and analysis of a delicate and impressive inner space~ the mind.

The conference was organised by Simon Thorpe, University of Toulouse, and a superb supportive team, including the incomparable Karine Bouyer. The event featured an array of glittering and talented scientists from all over the planet, brought together to address questions related to memory and the brain. Round table discussions and brainstorming were as important as the innovative material imparted in the cutting edge lectures. The glorious setting of Albi, France and the excursions into the surrounding bucolic countryside aided the scintillating debate and discussion. Much of real consequence was achieved~ plus many relevant drivers for significant further thought on issues relating to perception and memory. This was a good one~ without the shadow of a doubt in any grey cells.
