Fuck Content

A Web Native Rereading

One thing that interests me is experimenting with ways of consuming information on digital platform. Making the experience more unique and more tied to the content. For this project, I thought about how navigation controls would work for reading articles. The specific article I chose was "Fuck Content." This article is Michael Rock's (of 2x4 Fame) second attempt at wrestling with authorship within the field of Graphic Design. Here he fights against the idea that Designers must have a hand in developing unique content to be authors. Michael argues that we designers as the making of form and giving meaning to content is an authorship in itself. Following his mantra, the website's form and the way his text is laid out across it is my authorship to create a stronger connection between the audience and his essay.
