– Visionary texts about the future of reading and the status of the word
– With contributions by 82 invited authors: journalists, designers, researchers, politicians, philosophers and many others
I Read Where I Am contains visionary texts about the future of reading and the status of the word. We read anytime and anywhere. We read of screens, we read out on the streets, we read in the office but less and less we read a book at home on the couch. We are, or are becoming, a different type of reader. How will we grapple with compressed narratives and the fluid bombardment of text? What are the dialectics between image and word? How will our information machines generate new reading cultures? Can reading become a live, mobile social experience? To answer all these (and other) questions, I Read Where I Am displays 82 diverse observations, inspirations and critical notes by journalists, designers, researchers, politicians, philosophers and many others.
