Meaning Seeking Animals
EJS, Node.js, MongoDB Mollie Payments

As a result, the publication borrows from cartography, as it sets the reader adrift on a topographic map of sentences and paragraphs “as it is high time for cartography to take its place among the arts and for the atlas to be recognised as literature, for it is more than worthy of its original name, theatrum ordis terrarum, the theatre of the world”.

The publication tunes into our highly textured and complex radio environment by subjecting itself to the unpredictability, seasonality, solar circles of the ionosphere and the current location of the reader. The publication embeds itself by using real time ionospheric measurements to determine how much publication and how much environment arrives.

Do you feel a sense of dread when you open Adobe Indesign or Microsoft Word? If so, Publish or Perish! is the Desktop Publishing tool that’s right for you. With its pressure cooking countdown, a series of sudden disruptions, and achievements to get, Publish or Perish! makes Desktop Publishing challenging like it was back in the days. Publish or Perish! will catapult you to a place where software meets the unexpected. Publish or Perish is the name for the research and creation project that Silvio Lorusso and Stef Kors, on behalf of the PublishingLab of Amsterdam, have developed for Foto Colectania. This commission has materialized in a free online digital content publishing web/app with the capacity to publish both images and texts. The work was presented in Barcelona during a Printing Party at Foto Colectania as part of the DONE3 festival.

Artificial Intelligence never has a headache

The publication imagines a possible future format for tech related theory which — with the constant updates of technology— tend to see the edge of obsolescence straight out of the publisher’s door.

Poetics and Politics of Erasure
EJS, Node.js, MongoDB Mollie Payments

Poetics and Politics of Erasure is a multidisciplinary essay on the aesthetics and politics of erasure. The framework for erasure is drawn from a critique of accelerationism, the video game Katamari Damacy, and internet aesthetics. It begins by investigating power relations in dominant archival practices, before tracing how memory storage technology (from the written word to the internet) reinforces hierarchical models of knowledge, and finally posing the generative potential of erasure in alternative models of knowing, doing, and being. It does so by locating strategies of erasure in audio, visual, and digital cultures in the forms of: erasure/forgetting, translation/mutation, and recontextualizing/remythologizing. oneacre.online had a small feature in the Sonic Acts Academy book.
