MA work

As a graphic designer I’m interested in the process of publishing and the notion of scale of production. Considering the reproduction and the distribution as an extension of the content, I try to explore the narrative potential of an ad-hoc publishing set up. This is informed by a desire to explore historical economic models of production: large scale and small scale, standardised tools and handmade amateur crafts.
