From voice to text, from text to book, and then where the text will go?
On the afternoon of July 15th 2017, four artists and a philosopher discussed what is expected for an artist today referring to their own practices. In the evening of the same day another artist presented a new video work inspired by an old 16mm film as one-night installation and had a talk session on how place and history can be interpreted creatively through visual media. Their voice for curation and interpretation have been transcribed and textualized, to be published as Curatorial Turn, the fourth book of KYOTO Design Lab Library. When does voice turn into text? How does text become a book? What does it imply to edit a book? Tangling excessively, the paratext created through the actual editing weaves the metaphor of the act of editing spatiotemporally in the KYOTO Design Lab Tokyo Gallery.
