Session 75: “The Café Society” Part I
During this first of two, back-to-back, Theory Tuesdays sessions, The Café Society presented their four most recent projects: “trails”, “collecthing”, “SchplitZing” and “Lines”. At the end of the session a reader was handed out. The reader included text excerpts from writings that inspired the four projects. It was possible to respond to the reader in “Lines” before the second session on November 29th.
The Café Society (Lukas Zimmer & Anthon Astrom) work on the topic of on-screen reading/writing. They create frameworks – rule sets – based on how reading, writing and organization of textual information could work differently. As our daily reading habits change, so must our writing habits and the way we communicate, and ultimately the way we think.
