While developing a print installation about reading on transit, I began to read books about reading, continuing my communication history research. I collected ideas about reading formats, historical changes, portability, and our brain’s adaptability. We experience new ideas and stories in our minds through reading, internal journeys intersect with the physical world of fellow passengers and the changing landscape outside the window of a bus. Each day’s journey gives one’s life a divided feeling: here or there. While traveling, you are between places. While reading, you are in between the imagined the real.
