« Avant. Et maintenant. » Queneau

troisEcrituresThree text spaces in the ReadingClub – Queneau event at the Jeu de Paume, Paris, November 19 2013. Click to have a better view.

Reading Club included in Erreur d’impression. Publier à l’ère du numérique exposition dans l’espace virtuel du Jeu de Paume. Curateur Alessandro Ludovico.

It starts as the fixed space on a printed page, and it transforms to the digital space of the digitized text, becoming for a limited time, a ‘liquid text’ in a very unique (digital) space, where the live writing, which is also a mutual textual intervention, is making the text floating in a sea of meanings and emotions, through a public act of constructing and deconstructing sense.

Le texte imprimé dans l’espace figé de la page se transforme en texte numérisé au sein d’un espace virtuel, devenant, pour un temps donné, un texte “liquide” dans un espace spécifique. Le processus même d’écriture, qui apparaît au fil des interventions mutuelles des auteurs, tel un acte public de construction/déconstruction du sens, produit un texte qui semble flotter dans un océan de significations et d’émotions.

Reading Club  proposes a text and an interpretive arena to 4 readers. These readers write together their reading of a text inside the text itself. The audience sees an evolving, cinematographic picture of thoughts and collaborative writing in the making.

Reading Club is

* an intertextual play and an interpretive arena

* a device to explore reading on the web

* a factory of moving texts

* testing (once more) the status of the author

* a place where the public has a voice

ReadingClub is supported by Dicréam.
