Browsing is Learning

Bookmarked In Defense of Browsing by Leanne Shapton (Curbed)

Spontaneity is learning. Browsing is research.

All languages are alive, but visual language is galactic. Keywords are not eyeballs, and creating rutted pathways to follow is the antithesis of study.

But algorithmically chosen images are not fresh. They are low-hanging illustrative fruit: the pictorial version of wilted vegetables in the bottom of the crisper. The most used, the least surprising. Stale.
