The visitor is treated to fragments of books and other pre-existing texts, to which the installation can add new layers of real-time data from social media and newsfeeds. The printers in the installation are equiped with a small camera that can detect which page is placed in the paper tray. Simple algorithms then search for links between keywords in the text on this page, and related online content, which the printer then adds to the page.
A ditto, online device was comissioned by Z33 as part of their research studio Time, and acts as a ‘meta-project’ operating on texts coping with the topics defined within the research studio. The act of connecting these theoretical and abstract topics with popular culture aims to expose the tension between the fast and ever-changing digital world we live in, and the need for unproductive time necessary to facilitate reflection and learning.
