Bek and Bergen Public Library has collaborated on development of «Bergen Leser - Sammen!» («Bergen Reads - Together!»), an installation for reading aloud. Here citizens of Bergen and users of the library can contribute towards a collective reading of litterature for a web audience by means of a digital installation.
«Bergen Reads - Together!» is an installation in which you as a visitor at the Bergen Public Library can read passages from a book. The text (in Norwegian) is presented before you on a screen. The reading is recorded and filmed, joined with the preceding paragraphs read by others, and turned into a video book. The recordings are available online so that the public can follow the reading project, and ultimately see and hear the work as a digital version of the book.
First book out is RAIN by Stig Holmås. You'll find the installation at the Main Library, by the information desk in the 1. floor.
