The consideration of what publishing actual means today remains a relevant question for any creative practitioner. Over the past few years we have seen a huge rise in self-publishing, print on-demand services, tweeting and social media, from post-digital to post broadcasting, and the act of making things public (publishing) has become a vibrant mix of old and new technologies. This module examines some of these technologies from a multidisciplinary perspective and allows students to explore these within the context of their own practice. The module will focus on three themes (1) Paper. The book as technology, (2) Pixel. Post digital publishing, (3) The network. Distribution and connecting.
Students write reflective blog posts throughout the module and write a final reflective summary at the end.
