The London-based New Scientist Magazine has been publishing popular science and technology news since 1956. Each year it holds a large four-day conference in London, called ‘New Scientist Live,’ hosting talks and exhibitions from many of Europe’s leading innovators and scientists, and attracting tens of thousands of visitors. The exhibition and speaker’s space is divided into five main stage areas: Cosmos, Earth, Humans, Technology, and Engineering. While these categories have always overlapped to varying degrees, their distinctions are increasingly becoming blurred. This imbrication of the body and manufactured forms invites new biosocial approaches to investigating the role of materials within the sociality of the body. The body has, to varying degrees, always been manipulated and ‘made’.
