Listen to a snippet of the audio documentation from the first instalment of You must follow me carefully – http://soundcloud.com/boni-cairncross-1/you-must-follow-me-carefully-1
In this detail the focus is placed on Sebastian. Forty-five minutes into the performative workshop, Seb approached the audio recorder and spoke directly into it.

From the moment that we are taught to read (speaking specifically of English here) we approach text as a linear task – left to right, across the page. And for the most part we expect text to contain a narrative. Seb’s interpretation of the spatial placement of text on the page breaks away from those conventions.
