Luke Robert Mason is a British-born science communicator and the Director of Virtual Futures - an events series that brings together artists, cultural theorists, fiction writers, philosophers and technologists to re-address the potential of looking at our future through a techno-philosophical lens.

He is passionate about engaging the public with emerging scientific theory and technological development.

He is currently the host of the new Futurism documentary series 'Science Nonfiction.' The series follows his journey as he travels across the USA to meet eight companies that are rewriting the rules of what's possible. In each episode he learns about the development of technologies that once only existed in science fiction, and are now beginning to show up in our homes, cars, and workplaces.

As a journalist he has contributed to BBC Click Radio, The Guardian, Discovery Channel, VICE Motherboard and Wired Magazine.

Luke has presented visiting lectures at various UK and international institutions including the Royal College of Art, Royal Academy of Art, Victoria & Albert Museum, University of Warwick and the London School of Economics.

He has given keynote presentations around the world and has collaborated with numerous Fortune 500 companies.

Mason is a member of the artist collective The Institute of Unnecessary Research (IUR). He holds a MA (Distinction) in Media Arts, Philosophy Practice from the Centre for Fine Arts Research (CFAR) based at the Birmingham Institute for Art and Design (BIAD) and a BA (First-Class Honors) in Theatre, Performance and Cultural Studies from the University of Warwick
