Liam Young

Artist (1979)

Architect and director Liam Young operates in the spaces between design, fiction, and futures. His narrative approach, part documentary, part fiction, seeks to reveal the invisible connections and systems that determine our modern world. The artist proceeds through the exploration of far-off landscapes and the creation of prototypes of extrapolated future worlds. Liam Young is the co-founder of Unknown Fields, a nomadic research studio, as well as the think-tank Tomorrows Thoughts Today, a group whose work explores future urbanisms and the local and global implications of new technologies. His work has been acclaimed by the BBC, NBC, Wired, the Guardian, Time, and Dazed and Confused. He was nominated for a BAFTA for his role as a producer, and his work is present in several international collections such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Victoria and Albert Museum, and MAAS in Sydney. He has taught around the world and today runs an MA in fiction and entertainment at SCI-Arc.
