It's quine time

? Come read more ... by

'It is quine time !'' A look ahead in 60 years of print forced ooooo to think about the core of 'printing' but also about time.

What will remain of existing printed matter within sixty years in 2079? What and how will it be printed? Within the current paradigm shift, from a printed knowledge society to a digital data world, questions arise about who has access to information and knowledge and who are the gatekeepers of our virtual sources and servers? Who has the power over these new digital data structures? And aren't those systems that begin to think and execute themselves prejudiced; written for profit and self-liberation, resulting in a separation between man and machine? And in the light of the current climate crisis, what natural resources do we want to exploit in order to allow this digital infrastructure to continue to exist?

The work you will see consists of crystals, a fountain, stone, axidraw (xyplotter), pen holders, water and we ... people? In 2019 we were animals, organisms, cells in osmosis with machines, self-learning algorithms, data, non-binary *

What time is it for who, and when will it count
