In this article, the author shares the idea behind his photography exhibition called "Verbatim." "Verbatim" is comprised of digital images made with a flatbed scanner. The prints are "contact images" that remember and forget the earlier technological processes of photography and typewriting. Photography, typing, and phonographic writing (stenographer's shorthand) are all historically associated with the technologies of verbatim inscription. The history and memory of individuals' embodied relationship to these technologies is essential to the human-computer interface of contemporary digital technologies. "Verbatim" reconsiders the development of language machines and the subsequent systems of storage and retrieval.
