Machines and Reading
Hi all, just something I was about to post on my own blog but thought as I have not posted here for ages and its book arts related so thought you guys might be interested.
As part of my research I am looking at machines and reading, especially the future of reading. I am experimenting with QR Codes at the moment as holders of information and text. People generally use them as promotional tools or website links and they are scanned by smartphones and translated by those machines/software into the text and/or webpage link.
I am thinking of building up a narrative using several of these codes and am just at the experimentation stage right now. If any of you have a clever phone please scan this code and let me know how it looks on your phones. Thanks!
Ps. I received Aine's beautiful book in the post the other day; thank you Aine, it is just stunning!
