Liquid Reading

Liquid Reading attempts to deconstruct the process of reading and engages in visual reflection on what liquid reading might signify, entail, implicate.

As well as using the Liquid Reader on the course, we have been exploring, conceptually and visually, the idea that reading itself has become ‘liquid’ in the age of digital flows, online newspapers, and e-readers such as Kindle or iPad. However, given that the oldest surviving Bible, Codex Sinaiticus, carries over 24,000 corrections, perhaps the book as the quintessential subject and object of reading has always been unstable? In other words, isn’t reading always already and inevitably liquid?

The students are trying to capture the liquidity of the reading process using a variety of media.

This is my attempt (even though the photo is not mine):
