56 Broken Kindle Screens by Silvio Lorusso and Sebastian Schmieg

by 12 septiembre 2012

Siempre lo he pensado. Donde esté un preciosa pantalla electrónica rota, con esas cristalizaciones, esos anárquicos arcoíris (aunque con el Kindle pocos colores se verán…), esas geometrías preciosamente irregulares, que se quite cualquier Vermeer.

Me he pasado. Pido perdón a la familia Vermeer y a toda la gente con un criterio menos anormal que el mio. Pero volverá a pasar, avisados.

56 Broken Kindle Screens – Photographed E Ink, Collected Online, Printed On Demand
Silvio Lorusso and Sebastian Schmieg, 2012

“56 Broken Kindle Screens” is a print on demand paperback that consists of found photos depicting broken Kindle screens. The Kindle is Amazon’s e-reading device which is by default connected to the company’s book store.

The book takes as its starting point the peculiar aesthetic of broken E Ink displays and serves as an examination into the reading device’s materiality. As the screens break, they become collages composed of different pages, cover illustrations and interface elements.
