The Galaxy Re-imagined
Alternative Guide to the Universe, haywood gallery, southbank centre


When Adam Douglas wrote The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy in 1977, he was stepping outside the box, but for the people who put together the Alternate Guide to the Universe, the box never existed in the first place.

If you go to this exhibition at the Southbank Centre, be prepared to throw your science book away, and leave all previous beliefs by the wayside. Open until the 26th August, the Alternate Guide to the Universe explores the wacky imaginations of unorthodox artists, architects, and scientists. Their eccentric perspective of how the world works will have you scratching your head, and wishing you had a Babel Fish to help translate.

The contributors create fictional identities, design imaginary cities, develop non-existent technology, and follow their own invented culture. For 11, you will discover a parallel universe with time travel, healing machines, and a newly formed alphabet.
