WAYS OF SEEING WAYS OF READING
Ways of Seeing Ways of Reading is a design research project that reflects on the margins as a space where the actions and interpretations of readers become tangible and take shape. By adapting Ways of Seeing by John Berger to a website format – Ways of Seeing, John Berger (ft. readers) – I want to offer a contemporary reading of it based on the TV series, book and the impressions of it by readers in the LCC library; constructing a dialogue between readers and writer that functions as a never-ending collaborative project that adds content to the literary work.
Comments, likes and tags have become the marginalia of the internet, taking a less tangible aesthetic but allowing a space for dialogue, the sharing of knowledge and responses to published material. By displaying, filtering and adding content to what they read, the web becomes an endless work in progress.
