Technology sometimes falls short

This issue is a collection of stories about new technologies, about optimism, and about limits. A technological advantage that allows humans to travel to space, to build higher, longer, faster, or to bridge one condition or another may not always have the outcome that we really hoped for. And some technologies reshape our ways of thinking and living to such an extent that they themselves become platforms for new speculation.

Speed Reading

Pause
00:00:00
00:00:00

An afternoon reading marathon in which participants walked, jogged, or ran on a treadmill while reading aloud a text addressing the notion of speed. Reader-runners shared 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.
