Lunch Bytes

As if the spatial aspects of the book were not a constraint, the images flow through transparent pages with complete ignorance of the paper width. The design of No Internet, No Art plays with the bumpy transitions when bridging content between material and digital frameworks. The publication was designed together with Hannes Gloor and selected for the archives of The Best Dutch Book Designs (2016)

No Internet, No Art, a Lunch Bytes Anthology is the result and continuation of the Lunch Bytes series of public events held in Washington, D.C., which invited artists and experts from different fields to discuss their work around the connection between the internet and art.

“By opening up the often narrowly defined discursive field of “post-internet,” artistic practices are examined thematically within the larger context of digital culture. As such, the anthology offers valuable new contributions to the fields of art history, media studies, philosophy, curatorial studies, and design.”
