Schönes Projekt von Silvio Lorusso und Sebastian Schmieg, die Screenshots von kaputten Kindles zu ‘nem Buch gebunden haben. Glitch-Haptik-Gadgetkunst, oder so ähnlich. Bestellen kann man das Buch auf Lulu für nichtmal 4 Euro.

“56 Broken Kindle Screens” is a print on demand paperback that consists of found photos depicting broken Kindle screens. The Kindle is Amazon’s e-reading device which is by default connected to the company’s book store.

The book takes as its starting point the peculiar aesthetic of broken E Ink displays and serves as an examination into the reading device’s materiality. As the screens break, they become collages composed of different pages, cover illustrations and interface elements.
