With great pleasure we can announce the first festival participant has arrived at our doorstep: the new and brilliant HOLO Magazine. For those of you who do not know HOLO: it’s a magazine that originated from the Creative Applications network and supported with contributions from a worldwide community of digital makers. What’s so special about the mag is the shift from an online blog to the slow-pace of paper, all in favour of a new and deeper understanding of the hyper-speed practices of contemporary artists and technological developments. Like HOLO says:
“A magazine about emerging trajectories in art, science, and technology. HOLO is a biannual window into their world: 200+ pages of personal encounters with leading practitioners, visits to key studios and institutions around the world, analysis from prominent thinkers and niche experts—each issue of HOLO is a thorough record of timely trends and paradigms, mixing long-form journalism with striking photography in premium print.”
At FIBER Festival we’ll be selling the first edition of HOLO and hopefully also present number 2… It’s nice to know the cover of HOLO 1 is created by Amsterdam-based design studio Moniker.
