The Final Word. – RCA CA&D, edited by David Gibson, Livia Lima, Susanne Stahl, Jigna Chauhan, Vanessa Boni
This publication is a compilation of three books featuring work by Communication Art and Design students at the Royal College of Art. Guest artists, designers, illustrators, alumni and RCA tutors have all responded to three starter topics:
Book 1 – Fact and Fiction in a Digital Context. A text by Holly Francis that discusses the loss of authorship in the online environment, asking, who is the author? And what defines reality?
Book 2 – The Value of Things. An image of a postcard generated by Lola Halifa-Legrand exploring material artefacts in a digital environment, sent to RCA students by email.
Book 3 – New Models for Publishing. An online platform created by Pedro Cid Proença, where users can comment on the text as a whole, a section of it, or on a comment made by another user.
Contributors include Abäke, Europa, Julia, Stewart Smith, Adrian Shaughnessy and Sara de Bondt
