This book considers the relevance of the publication in the Internet age. Known or exhibited works are adequately represented on the web, here Banner’s work is represented through the ephemera surrounding it, the stuff that is not exhibited. It does not seek to present the work formally or as finite, but as a process. The title ‘Scroll Down And Keep Scrolling’ refers to the act of looking back historically, but also to something endless. Scrolling down the page is how we read digitally; at the same time it refers to a time before books. The book focuses on informal photographs and related material from an archive spanning the last 30 years. It takes the material form of a large directory, typeset in a font designed especially for this project, titled Font.
