*class in progress*
Every text, after all, is a lazy machine asking the reader to do some of its work. What a problem it would be if a text were to say everything the receiver is to understand – it would never end.
^ Umberto Eco, Six Walks in the Fictional Woods, 1994
Lazy Machine is a year-on-year evolving elective (currently) embedded within BA (Hons) Graphic Design at Kingston School of Art in London. It is run by Matthew Stuart and deals with reading and publishing, language and typography, scripts and transcipts, the voice and written word, and their modes of display. Lazy Machine describes something assembled yet incomplete, an instrument that is only fully operative through acts of participation, lying redundant without the breath of another for life.
This websites doubles as a tool for sharing *projects*, *workshops* and *talks* with students, as well as a depository recording ongoing activities (and interests), a way to work through ideas in public.
