PICTURING THE INVISIBLE was made possible by the generous support of the Responsibility in Science, Engineering, and Technology (RESET) MA course at the Department for Science, Technology & Society, TU Munich.

It has been delivered in partnership with the Royal Geographical Society and the Japanese Embassy in London, as an official partner in the Japan-UK Season of Culture.

This project would not have been possible without the enthusiasm of all the contributing artists and essayists, as well as a small army of less visible colleagues, who have been tireless in their encouragement and help. My thanks go to all the staff at the Department for Science, Technology & Society, TU Munich (formerly, the Munich Centre for Technology in Society) for their steadfast support. Prof. Sebastian Pfotenhauer’s generosity and verve, in particular, has been truly indispensable. It would be no understatement to say that there would be no Picturing the Invisible without him. My thanks go also to Prof. Sheila Jasanoff and the Science Democracy Network. The mentorship and camaraderie of this community has been the bedrock on which this project was built. I owe a debt also to Emmanuel College, Cambridge which has nurtured my work on 3.11 over the past decade and supported this endeavor in myriad ways. Special thanks are owed to our out-going Master, Dame Fiona Reynolds; my MPhil and PhD supervisor, Dr. Alex Jeffrey; and Robert Macfarlane, for their support. I would also be remiss if I did not extend special acknowledgement to Dr. Amandine Davre for her magnanimity and logistical support. Finally, I would like to thank Matthew Teitelbaum, Imran Khan, and the staff of the Fulbright Commission for their invaluable advice and encouragement.
