This newspaper has already been read. The movements of the eyes while reading were recorded, digitized and printed out. Something of the otherwise invisible process of reading is made visible, and a trace of the absorbtion of information remains. The result being a read newspaper, a finished paper so to speak, an entire «Frankfurter Allgemeine». The printing of the paper was done along with the usual daily issue of the «Frankfurter Allgemeine», in an identical printing process on rotating presses.
