Reading & Thinging #2
On Parapoetics and Paramechanics

In this session we explored Parapoetics and mechanical systems as ways to approach non-human, non-anthropocentric reading and writing systems.

Readings for this session included texts by Morten Søndergaard, Aaron M. Moe, a rawlings and Alfred Kempe, as well as machines from the Cornell University Kinematic Models Digital Library.

We also built a simple system for creating and exploring different types of linkages, and straight-line mechanisms.
