Anyone want to attempt the same trick on Adrián Villar Rojas’s concrete amphitheater at MoMA PS1?
Like its publisher, Corrected Slogans sidles curiously between print and digital. Its fastidious edits, a vestige, increasingly, of the printed page, lend it the feel of a dog-eared book, removed from the web’s frictionless slick. At the same time, it takes the footnote and subjects it to the logic of the Internet. Its annotations seem beholden to the sort of tangential wandering through sources that Google and its bevy of digitized books enable.

This world I live in—this isn’t quite how I want to live. I want the time and space to think and read, and to look at and make things; I want unbroken days so I can write with a clear head; to reread your essay, to read myself into it before I edit it. I want to get paid a bit more for a bit less done better, with more care, and I want the same for my friends and strangers. I want to discuss what I’m doing and thinking about with thoughtful people; I want my work to amount to something solid, not scatter out in multitasked busyness. And I know it’s not the Internet’s fault—but where did my day go? Where the hell did the day go? I read a lot of interesting things, they seemed interesting at the time, I can’t quite remember. I have thirteen tabs open, twenty-one, thirty-four, it’s like I’m almost living in my laptop. Is it … the Internet … the Internet … not me … [shakes, collapses, palpating smartphone]
