Through Reading I


Through reading the news we can begin to ‘know’ another, ‘an’-other. Someone, somewhere, who at the same moment is alive, feels, wants and thinks. Someone who our idea of was, initially, maybe opaque or prejudiced. Through the phenomenon of headlines a people, or a person and their place, enter our minds, maybe our vernacular. ‘Trump’, or ‘Wuhan’ come to mean more than the person or place. They become a feeling, of awe, fear, anger.
