READING 4: Artie VierkantThe Image Object Post-Internet

Text to Speech is a collaborative reading group co-organized by Western Front, Cineworks and VIVO Media Arts Centre. The next event will take place next Tuesday at Western Front. Focused on writing about media, media art and the surrounding concepts and frameworks of the mediated world, the gatherings are open to suggestions and diversions, aiming to build stronger community ties and knowledge in our field. Text To Speech is oriented to participation. We provide excerpts to attendees and facilitate group reading, discussion, and analysis of a text. Prior knowledge of a given text is encouraged but not required, as all sessions will involve some form of introduction, and some portion of close reading (out loud).
