The Café Society (Part I of II)
During this first of two, back-to-back, Theory Tuesdays sessions, The Café Society will present their four most recent projects: "trails", "collecthing", "SchplitZing" and "Lines". After their presentation, they will open up a discussion around these four applications. At the end of the session a reader will be handed out, to be read over the following week. The reader includes text excerpts from writings that inspired the four projects. It will be possible to respond to the reader in "Lines" before the second session scheduled on November 29th. Both sessions will be held in English.
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. Authoring is becoming curating, and the expression of the in-between gains importance over content.
