Has Man A Function In Universe? is part of an ongoing project to develop forty projects related to forty questions written by R. Buckminster Fuller. Each project is an artwork or a combination of artworks, developed in response to one of the questions. Of all the questions ‘Has Man A Function In Universe?’ may be the key that binds and directs all of the other questions. Gavin Wade has commissioned artists and writers to respond to this question using a combination of text and image.
The publication will reflect the process of the project—an ‘exquisite corpse’ involving collaboration, dissemination and the combining of works.
