Akram describes artist and stage designer Es Devlin as a force of both nature and wisdom. In a wide ranging conversation Es reveals to Akram how being sensitive to movement has a profound effect on all her many and varied design projects.

Es Devlin talks about the movement that is both within us and all around us, and how as an artist she harnesses it for creativity. From the subtleties of human eye movements and molecules moving in a space, to the breath that brings music to life, or the body’s fight-or-flight reaction to riding a bike, Es’s stories of a world in motion are both fascinating and inspiring. She also reveals to Akram her simple morning ritual involving movement of sunlight that grounds her at the beginning of each day.
