Word in Process

"Word in Process" (2012) is a text instrument developed by Lieven Van Speybroeck.

Word in Process

Word in Process; construction picture


Word in Process sprung from a strong interest in the evolution of reading and writing technologies and practices and their relation to the spoken word. Throughout history, our relation to and dealings with text are characterized by a process of gradual internalization, passivation, visual isolation and de-physicalization. By creating an interface that allows for a more bodily and less visually fixated production and consumption of text, this project is an experiment in establishing a kind of literacy in which physical and mental activity relate more harmoniously through the use of voice, time, feet movement and keystroke pressure as forms of expression, much in the same way one would play the piano. Our writing and reading machines are not neutral devices but bear the marks of cultural values, conscious choices and varying interests. Word in Process is about reviewing and readdressing those values and choices in the hope to discover unexplored areas.
