AboutDeep City was born first as a photo-montage and script for the Microsoft Social Symposium of early 2010 on “smart cities”. When I was 19, I was accepted in an architecture course, chose product design instead but stayed fascinated by cities and their ability to shape us and our understanding of the world. The eBook is a further exploration a year after that talk, to try to extract the individual elements we see in cities over and over again, to help me develop some sort of vocabulary for the cities I know and love, building blocks that make them all melt into one another. I used the photographs I have been taking in the cities I have lived in and visited for the past 5 years or so.

About : DodoLab has collaborated with the Workers Arts and Heritage Centre (Hamilton, Ontario, Canada) on the creation of A New Workers Songbook. The project is based on WAHC’s collection of books and recordings of songs that reflect Hamilton’s history of industry and organized labour. The goal of this project is to create songs about current realities for working people in Hamilton. Reflecting on the shifts in jobs and work, this participatory and process-based project explores current perceptions from both an individual and collective perspective. Artist/curator Caitlin Sutherland has worked with DodoLab on the design of the installation and the various surveys and has also been the lead on statistical research. Hamilton artist, performer and musician Tor Lukasik-Foss is the lead on the songwriting component of the project he has designed this workbook to help aspiring songwriters to create their own worker’s songs.

About : An eBook of photos celebrating the stories so far in the history of Cartoon de Salvo.

Published October 2010

Founded in 1997, Cartoon de Salvo is one of the country’s most respected theatre companies. Their cocktail of script-defying improvisation, live music and exceptional storytelling has won critical acclaim and a devoted following. On their quest to mess with the live theatre experience, the Salvos make theatre that wears its heart on its sleeve, that likes an adventure, and that never forgets that the audience is the number one reason for putting on the show. The company has played everywhere from tiny village halls in Cumbria to cliff tops in Cornwall, from proper producing houses to shopping malls, to Edinburgh, Glastonbury and Hong Kong International Festivals.  Show include: Meat and Two Veg, The Sunflower Plot, their acclaimed allotment set outdoor theatre event and The Ratcatcher of Hamelin. In 2010 the Salvo’s are joining forces with producer Ed Collier (Fuel, China Plate, Arvon) and touring Pub Rock in urban boozers across the UK, making a new show about science and religion called The Irish Giant, creating a new music impro event called Made Up and taking completely unscripted Hard Hearted Hannah and Other Stories to the Kennedy Centre, Washington DC.

10 Years of Diffusion
September 17, 2010 – 1:10 pm | 4 Comments
10 Years of Diffusion

10 years ago this month we published the very first series of Diffusion eBooks, Performance Notations, launching our particular brand of hand-made hybrid digital/paper publishing on an unsuspecting public. Over the past decade we have followed that series with several others of our own (and a few by partners and collaborators) such as : Species of Spaces, Liquid Geography, CODE, Short Work, Topographies and Tales & Transformations and published well over 400 eBooks (and nearly 200 StoryCubes too). In 2002 we published the design schematics allowing others to create their own Diffusion eBooks (with recent updates for all 4 design variations and right-to-left reading too) and followed that in 2006 with the first version of our online web application for creating eBooks & StoryCubes, the Diffusion Generator. Hundreds of eBooks and StoryCubes were created (not all published here) by its users over a two and a half-year period. For a more in depth history of Diffusion read this post from 2007.

In 2008 we won a small grant from the Technology Strategy Board to build a new prototype service that would be vastly more powerful and flexible than the old Generator – what eventually became bookleteer.com. The alpha version was launched at the end of September 2009 and we now have several hundred users who have created almost one thousand eBooks and StoryCubes with it during its first year, including some in languages such as Arabic and Hindi. In the past 6 months we’ve rolled out lots of new features, such as new sizes, customisable front covers and our exclusive Publish & Print On Demand service. We have also created a crowdfunding scheme for collaborators, partners and friends to support bookleteer’s technical development, Alpha Club. We’ve run a series of events, Pitch Up & Publish, introducing bookleteer to new users – both in our own studio in Clerkenwell and around the country with the Empty Shops Network.

To kick-off Diffusion’s next decade we’re devising a new series of events, Pitch In & Publish, and adopting a new model of participatory publishing for our curated series. Rather than selecting individuals to create eBooks as we have done for previous series we will host events where people can collaborate in designing and creating a series of publications with others. Proboscis will define the series theme and individual topics for each issue, which will be put together during a one-day event. We will be publishing the collaborative publications (which could be an eBook or a series of StoryCubes) on this site and we will be inviting the participants to use bookleteer to create their own personal contributions to the series. A limited edition run of the publication will be printed using the PPOD service for participants. Pitch In & Publish will launch in October 2010 with the first series, City As Material. Topics will include: river, streetscapes, skyline and underside.

About : Alice Angus and Joyce Majiski created this StoryCube set for Topographies and Tales. They are designed to be played with, used as a thinking tool for ideas about landscape, navigation, myths and  environments, belonging and home.  Pile them up together, throw them like dice, arrange into maps, build into landscapes of stories…

Topographies and Tales is about the relationship between people, identity and place. It unearths local and personal stories and myths exploring how concepts of landscape are shaped by ideas of belonging and home.

It is a personal exploration of the intimate way people form relationships with their environments, it takes a journey through the tall tales and perceptions the artists encountered on their travels in the west of Scotland and the Yukon.

Topographies and Tales was a long term collaboration between Alice Angus and Canadian artist Joyce Majiski, that included a film, creative lab and publications. The collaboration began in 2003 in Ivvavik National Park in the Canadian Arctic then in Glenmore Lodge in the Cairngorm Mountains, Scotland, the Klondike Institute for Art and Culture in Dawson City, Canada, Joyce’s Tuktu Studio in Whitehorse and the Proboscis Studio in London.
