Hybrid Print-Digital 'Zine
I made Re-Record in 2003-4 in an effort to try to figure out what to do next, now that graduate school was over.
I figured I wasn't the only one asking myself that question, so I decided to reach out to all the creative people I knew and make
something that would make all of us - well, make something!
Contributors created digital projects that I published on a CD-Rom. The author(s) of each project had two related
pieces in the companion print 'zine: one interview conducted by them about another featured project, and one
interview with them conducted by another contributor.
Re-Record exposed digital artists, designers, and hobbyists with a casual,
lighthearted approach to their work. Re-Record contributors were playful and serious at the same time.
They experimented with technique, form, and expression. To
expose their goals, Re-Record contributors asked each other about thier submissions while they were
producing or preparring them.
Re-Record encouraged collaboration and quietly
requested that contributors consider the act of creating and that activity's capacity to be replicated, revised, re-recorded
in our digital times. People leave both tangible and intangible traces. The
form of Re-Record mirrors this - the physical product lucidates the digital, the possibly ephemeral.
