The 4th Brain book
The 4th Brain is a culmination of five years work exploring what it means to have grown up in the net-generation. The book is made up of poems, essays and illustrations that follow a millennial journey in the search for connection with self, other and the globe beneath their feet. The work finds resolution in the web's role in a divine feminine revolution. It was created in collaboration with artist and musician Elizabeth Clough and printed by Footprint workers co-operative on recycled paper using soya based inks. Poems from the book have been featured on BBC Radio 4 and BBC Radio Leeds.
"Blazing bright, razor-sharp, Lisa Luxx dazzles with wild wit and fierce passion."
- Jake Arnott
The 4th Brain show
To celebrate the release of the book, Luxx created a live show with the accompaniment of local multi-instrumentalist, Rico. It was launched to a sell-out audience at The Ace Hotel, in London. And has toured the UK including a stand-out performance at Huddersfield Literature Festival. The show continues to tour through 2017 including dates in Croatia, Edinburgh and the US.
"In a world full of safe, mortage-paying lifestyles it came as a relief and a thrill to hear Lisa Luxx’s vision of the present and the future.
