Read is an interactive art installation which questions how digital media can alter the way we perceive, absorb, and retain text-based content by changing our attention model. This installation is designed to address the problem of reading behavior transformation, to let the audience reflect on their daily information consumption behavior, and, as a society, to invite them thinking about the future of reading. The design process includes three parts: contextual research, methodology, and evaluation. Contextual research contains influential academic references, and influential precedents in the field of art and design. Methodology describes previous experiments about the same domain, user experience flow of the project, and technique implementations. In the part of evaluation, there are reflections of current project, and future plans.
