Printed Matter: Filipa Ramos

Filipa Ramos’ presentation continued this consideration of the desire for the physical, noting that most online formats now replicate the page, which leads to a printing out of the internet, rendering or translating it into a material state. In Looking  at  Something,  Thinking  of  Something  Else:  Attention  and Distraction in our Times of Screen Reading, Ramos observed that for millennia humans have been creating structures for capturing and sustaining attention, and the last two decades has seen a renegotiation of this as portable technology has replaced the in-person environment. Ramos has developed a new project for television which uses the format of the teleprompter to invite the audience to pay attention in a specific moment, challenging the static text status quo.
