Living Lines | Special Episode

Living Lines | Special Episode

For this special episode we explore our relationship with the line – following the marks we make through writing and weaving and tracing the lines that shape our landscape. Down the telephone line from Aberdeen, we hear Tim Ingold, academic and author of A Brief History of Lines. Tim takes us through his discoveries, suggesting that we are all interwoven and interconnected by drawing on archaeology, language, music and nature. In a noisy London square, Laura Barton speaks to Max Porter, acclaimed author of Grief is the Thing with Feathers and Lanny. Max is known for his intermingling of prose and poetry, for his physical exploration of the line on the page.
