The In Between

Eleanor Rosamund Barraclough discusses the In Between and the strange passions it arouses with a philosopher, an artist, a writer, a poet and a neuroscientist.

Eleanor Rosamund Barraclough explores the uncanny possibilities of the In Between with the neuroscientist Dean Burnett, award-winning poet Vahni Capildeo, artist Alexandra Carr, writer and walker of London and other wastelands, Iain Sinclair, and the philosopher, Emily Thomas.
How do our brains and bodies react in the In Between spaces of the airport lounge or the station platform where we're waiting to move on but temporarily in stasis and why have so many artists, writers and poets used these places to explore the uncanny, the strange and ourselves?

Dean Burnett: 'The Idiot Brain' is out now
Vahni Capildeo: 'Matters of Expatriation' is out now; her forthcoming collection 'Venus as a Bear' is out in April 2018
Iain Sinclair: 'The Last London' is out
Alexandra Carr: Sculpting with Light, University of Durham residency
Emily Thomas: Absolute Time: Rifts in Early Modern British Metaphysics; Early Modern Women on Metaphysics - both out in 2018

Producer: Jacqueline Smith
