Surfez sur notre site éphémère de cette année
Molten lead printing processes have gone, the blank page has itself liquified; nowadays we write as we speak. Eyes gazing into our screens, our lives unfold in an uninterrupted flow. Non-stop, no pre-determined formats, no borders. We can be in the meandering backwaters one minute, in the the rushing rapids of information the next. ; in either situation we have to re-learn how to channel the data, to harness the energies and emotions as they pass. Designers sort and organise these movements, planting marker-posts along the way.
What will remain of us in The Cloud ? Do our graphical tool updates succeed in updating us, their users ? How might we usefully occupy our time when we are not doing paid work ? How should we make the most of this typographical abundance ? Are our bodies being dissolved in these digital streams ?
In our ongoing work-life, with the constant chatter of our social networks, can we pause on the banks to observe this timeless river ? Should we allow ourselves to be carried along in the current, or should we push against it to show that we have the strength to resist?
In the village of Lurs, this summer, high above the Durance river, from 19th to 25th of August 2018, we shall be trying to slow (and relax in)… the flow.
