Shu-Ju Wang: "In a reference to ever miniaturized technologies that allow us to surround ourselves with ever more content, this book raises the question of the Signal-to-Noise (S/N) ratio of such content. Using archival clear adhesive tape, 'noisy words' are transferred from black Arches Cover to Strathmore Drawing paper in an accordion book. Translations of the text, in both English and in audio waveforms, are Gocco printed on the back. A recording of (me) reading the text is the source for the waveforms."
