For this project I’ve been reading a wide range of essay’s and books. I’ve also been exploring past exhibitions that have explored similar themes.
Below is a list of a few things that have been of interest.
‘The Information’ (2011 Published by Pantheon) by James Gleick is a broad study of data and information from both a historical and contemporary perspective. This book set the foundation for this work as it first introduced me to the concept of a broader interpretation of language i.e. the talking drum
‘Muntadas. On Translation’ catalogues 27 projects by Antoni Muntadas that explore translation. The book is epic (though a little full on at times).
