The Lab Philosophy

Artists are emerging as authors and entrepreneurs in a variety of new markets and media. Methods such as print-on-demand book, the wave of self-publication, prototyping, high-end output devices and laser-cutters intersect with new creative directions. Bodyware imagery, instructional and socially inspired projects, web-based critique, archives, games, animation, and literary works are a few of the directions being taken to create content and express ideas.

Her collection of zines and indy published books was a great example of what's happening in the field today. Thanks to Elena for giving so much of her time to the discussion on indy publishing and for her insightful reviews of each students projects!
