A panel of six short papers presenting tightly focused accounts offering prismatic perspectives on the theme of complex time-space. The research encompasses historical and literary scholarship, critical artistic and design practice, and information science consistently asking how space-time defines and is defined by human experiences: of pleasure and trauma, creativity and crime, security and insecurity; and how it is represented in textual, graphical, audiovisual and extended reality forms. The papers address questions of mobility, place-making, displacement and co-presence, as sites of complex space-time relations, in every century from the seventeenth to the present. The panel is intended to generate discussion around how organising concepts and frameworks from one approach - chronotopes, dimensionality reduction, thick-mapping, fuzziness and spatial syntax - may prove unexpectedly applicable across conventional boundaries, and how these may be productively mediated by new of existing digital tools and techniques.
