Eyes’ movements

newspaper.jpg (24 KB)

This Newspaper has already been read. The eyes’ movements while reading were recorded, digitalized and then reproduced as a print-out. What emerges is an intimation of something that is actually an invisible process, namely reading; what remains behind is a trace of the intake of information. The result is a daily paper which has already been read – a complete and completely read Frankfurter Allgemeine, as it were. The paper was printed alongside a regular daily Frankfurter Allgemeine an in an identical manner using a rotary printing press. Kindly supported by Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung GmbH, Frankfurter Societätsdruckerei GmbH and Hesse Ministry of Science and Art. (Jochem Hendricks, “Newspaper”, 1994)

    3. I’d love to have a chance to play around with the same machine to see a physical representation of the way I read. It’d be interesting, if nothing else, to compare between that other one (the ‘control’, if you will). Well, I hope I’m not the only person awake that finds things like this enjoyable to think about.
