UbiScribe looks into server fed, network spread, serialized publishing, for screen and print.
No canned formats are solicited, unless (part of) their content can be updated, e.g. in hybrid cross-media productions. Conducted at the Jan van Eyck Academie the project's aim is to build a research catalogue and body of publications which invite further research and production in the field.
Send us your project records, guide us to your sites, drop us a note on publications that you are testing out there, or would like to experiment. The Jan van Eyck Academie is an active publishing partner in old and new media, for artists, designers and theoreticians. The current project allows for individual and collaborative projects to be supported in various ways. With its rich research library and archive documentation center the Academie has a core interest in cultural production and innovation in contemporary arts, design and theory.
