Co-position

Co-position is an attempt to re-imagine lay-out from scratch. We will analyse the history of lay-out (from moveable type to compositing engines) in order to better understand how relations between workflow, material and media have been coded into our tools. We will look at emerging software for doing lay-out differently, but most importantly we want to sketch ideas for tools that combine elements of canvas editing, dynamic lay-out, networked lay-out, web-to-print and Print on Demand.

Considering your tools

Today’s creation largely depends on digital tools. Far from being a neutral mean to an artistic achievement, those tools are actually opinionated: they carry values and are full of conventions about the way things “ought” to be done. Because of this, we think it is crucial to raise awareness among practitioners in order to make software and machines into tools to think with (or against), and to let us speculate about future  Continue Reading »
