Printed Matter: Chloé Wolifson

In my response to these presentations on the day, I observed that each in a different way considered whose needs are being addressed or met within these publishing contexts. While Strøm-Olsen considers what the problem is that each publication aims to solve in order to find its audience, the Book Machine project described by Linz was aimed at addressing the desires of each book’s creator rather than seeking to meet the demands of a specific audience. Ramos touched on the reader’s continued need for tactility in the face of evolving interfaces, while Rajendran considered how the book adapts to the reader’s needs gradually over time through annotative practices. The parallel threads of rupture and physicality thus continued to weave their way through the Ensemble discussions.
