“Writer, critic and curator, Anne-Marie Schleiner, envisages a new branch of curators, known as ’filter feeders’.
In nature, filter feeders feed by straining suspended matter and food particles from water, playing an important role in clarifying the water as well as sustaining themselves.
Similarly the filter feeder curator picks out the good bits from the Internet, saving the audience trawling time and delivering usable and consolidated information.”
