Illustrators and graphic designers create dramatic visions of the future in response to a new story written by the novelist Hari Kunzru.

Set in a future London, Hari Kunzru’s new story is about a dystopian society in which the world’s information has been wiped out by an immense magnetic storm. With technology gone, the dark ages prevail controlled by an organisation believing in extreme simplicity.

Amid this chaos is one man, locked in a cell, trying to remember the past. Inside his ‘memory palace’ he attempts to piece together the fragments of a lost life, re-constructing those moments in history that he can remember in the belief that without memory, civilization is doomed.
