*using optical character regonition software, i’ve asked a computer (as though a child trying to make sense of the world) to do an absurd task, a hermeneutical task, something it wasn’t built for, to interpret carpet as language. in return i am given something that i myself cannot interpret, although more readily interpretable than carpet. who is speaking to me: the carpet, the software, the programmer, or perhaps the language just is. the smartphone I used for this task ran hot, meaning the computer was processing a lot of information.
