In response to the question of what makes a good reader, Michael Day explores the way that attention is experienced and understood in relation to the distracting effects of social media and the mobile Internet. This book looks at the experience of distractibility that is […]

Invisible Layers

Invisible Layers (2015) takes as its starting point the mismatch between experience of the infrastructural landscape and the way this landscape is imaged. The piece uses terrain data from the United States Geographical Service and map data from the crowd-sourced Open Street Map to compile […]
