WORD PROCESSOR: HIGHLIGHTS FROM THE COLLECTION
Periodically, the library invites an individual that it admires to respond in writing to a book from the library that engages them. The majority of work produced from the library is visual in nature, yet the library contains a tremendous amount of written material that also merits attention. Word Processor is an initiative that encourages critical investigations of the wide-ranging information, attitudes and ideologies contained within the library's collection.
For the current installment, Sarah Bay Gachot presents Micro Man: Computers and the Evolution of Consciousness, an investigation into the utopian visions of artist and cyberneticist Gordon Pask's 1982 book of the same title. You can read it here.
