I would like to take a belated minute to thank Tod Maffin for responding to this post of mine from a week or so ago.In it, I wasn't very clear about why people read less efficiently when looking at a monitor or television screen compared to a projection screen or newspaper. Tod was kind enough to post a response that I will now repost, in case anyone missed the comments:
It’s from a great book called The Skin of Culture. Here’s a review
Basically, when light is beamed right at our eyes, like from a TV set or computer monitor, our nervous system interprets that as a threat, and it’s exhausting, subconciously, but physiologically. Fascinating read.
Thanks for coming to my session!
No, thank you, Tod.
