Displays are an inescapable touchstone of contemporary society. They are the inward and outward eye of the User. Within the context of and 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. Through three-dimensional software and actual, real objects, Presenter Mode highlights what is essential about the Display, void of User.
