The Noing Uv It draws on a number of recent and often unorthopdox ideas and developments in science and physics in order to question our relation to the nature of objects, materiality and 'reality'. Examining ideas around the nature and operation of matter at the sub-atomic level, the strange '(un)reality' of quantum mechanics, the evolution of perception and consciousness, the controversial theories of morphic fields, as well as a notion of extended mind, it references the work of radical scientists and thinkers including David Bohm, Rupert Sheldrake, Terry Rudolph, Timothy Morton and Graham Harman. In addition it includes a number of examples of new and old technologies developed by IBM, the European Space Agency and others.

Graham Harman is distinguished university professor. He is the 2009 winner of the AUC Excellence in Research and Creative Endeavors Award, and a frequent international lecturer. In 2013, he was ranked as the #81 most influential figures in the international art world by Art Review magazine. Harman is the author of eleven books, most recently Weird Realism: Lovecraft and Philosophy (2012) and Bells and Whistles: More Speculative Realism (2013). He is the editor of the Speculative Realism book series at Edinburgh University Press, and (with Bruno Latour) co-editor of the New Metaphysics book series at Open Humanities Press. He is a former Chicago sportswriter, an avid world traveler and a sixth-generation native of Iowa.

Martin Clark is director of Bergen Kunsthall and co-curator of “The Noing Uv It”.
