Displays are an inescapable touchstone of contemporary society. They are the inward and outward eye of the User. Within the context of an Institution, the Display is revered as a necessary point of contact between humans- paramount to the transmission of ideas. However the Display has meaning in the absence of input. Consider the human-less function of the Display. It is an act of silent meditation: a golden ratio that is both void and charged, absorbing and emanating. Within an operating system, “presenter mode“ is a mechanism to remove human influence/personalization from a Display, to provide a clean plane for the dedicated function. Presenter Mode lays bare the display to highlight its essentialism, void of User.
