Kodwo Eshun is a British-Ghanaian writer, Afro-futurist theorist and film-maker. Eshun’s writing deals with cyberculture, science fiction and music and how they intersect with the African diaspora. Eshun’s book More Brilliant than the Sun: Adventures in Sonic Fiction was published in 1998, written a style that makes extensive use of neologism, re-appropriated jargon and compound words. The book explores the intersection of black music and science fiction from an afrofuturist viewpoint. In that book, Kodwo Eshun devised a unique page-numbering system, beginning in negative numbers (e.g.-01[-017]). In 2002, Eshun also co-founded The Otolith Group, an artist collective, with Anjalika Sagar.
