Product Description

Part showcase, part recipe book, this publication is a blog-like overview of works from the artists Dennis de Bel and Roel Roscam Abbing. R&D: a low-end rich media publication stretches to nearly 200 pages; showing their prototypes, try-outs and designs (created during a two year collaboration). Their work makes a playful case for rethinking and reconsidering media and communications technologies.

Swiping through the pages, you can find designs for DIY smartphones, a guide on making internet connections via a walkie-talkie, and experiments in feline file-sharing. As both artists have a preference for the obsolete and the inefficient, the book comes with a complimentary optical disk featuring inclusive bonus material such as the source code, electronics schematics and a digital edition of the publication.
