Assembling a series of phone pictures taken over the course of a year, dilated across a volume yet compressed in size, Lai Yu Tong asks: in an age where the world’s images are available to us at the flick of a thumb, is it possible to decelerate the consumption of images? How can we be prompted to look at images that do not immediately gratify or satiate? Has the digital image become indistinguishable from information?
In conjunction with Browsing Copy, we worked with Yu Tong to create a volume of images that are arduous to engage with, specifically ones that are randomly tucked near the inner gutter of the book. This difficulty prompts the reader to decelerate the pace at which they flip the pages.
