Speed Reading

Special event, CCA Bookstore and galleries, 20 September 2009, 3pm

An afternoon reading marathon in which 20-25 people walk, jog, or run on a treadmill while reading aloud a text addressing the notion of speed. Reader-runners will share their preferred fast or slow manifesto, philosophical treatise, timetable, literary excerpt, slow-food recipe, biological notation, or space-time continuum in readings of 1 second to 4 minutes.

Speed Reading is a collaboration with Sina Najafi, Cabinet magazine editor and CCA Visiting Scholar, to celebrate the Speed Limits exhibition and catalogue.
