Juan Enriquez has made a world-class collection of historic maps which were drawn at the very point of discovery. This Friday he'll deploy them for the first time in one of his dazzling presentations, to examine how we image and imagine what we are exploring, and thus image and imagine exploration itself.
Enriquez is a presenter's presenter, his graphics and delivery so original and adroit that the rest of us study his performances for ideas we can steal. He is author of As the Future Catches You and The Untied States of America, and CEO and Chair of Biotechonomy, a life sciences research and investment firm.
