CAN YOU (AND DO YOU WANT TO) READ ME
Typographic characters are the smallest carriers of our language. With a language we can bring images back to life regardless of time and place. Typography is a window to the world that is inherent in our language. But can typography mislead or call an image that doesn't refer to the content? To which world is the reader being lead and how big is the willingness of the reader to give himself in to text?
At the exhibitions, visitors get the change to mark the things they saw, a sentence, a word, a name, or the white between the letters.
The work consists the full text of ‘While You’re Reading’ – Gerard Unger, 1996.
This work was made for the exhibition While you're reading (2016)
