Ted Nelson on Documents

A document is not necessarily a simulation of paper. In the most general sense, a document is a package of ideas created by human minds and addressed to human minds, intended for the furtherance of those ideas and those minds. Human ideas manifest as text, connections, diagrams and more: thus how to store them and present them is a crucial issue for civilization.—Ted Nelson Theory

Sol LeWitt’s “Xerox Book” contribution (1968)


Carl Andre’s “Xerox Book” contribution (1968)




Bernadette Mayer, Vito Acconci and 0 to 9 Magazine

We were trying to get far away from the idea, so promulgated, of the perfection of the poem with white space around it, set off from other things. The first cover was a mimeograph stencil — it was dark blue. Next was a rainfall map of the US. The third cover was all the first lines of work in the magazine. For the fourth issue, we wrapped all the book jackets Vito and I had in our possession around the cover. The fifth cover was a crumpled sheet of paper and the sixth was six blank sheets of paper.…


0 To 9 magazine

Self-published from 1967—1969, 0 To 9 originally appeared in seven inexpensive, mimeographed, staple-bound issues that were sold for a dollar an issue. Although democratically conceived, the original issues ultimately were printed in small runs of between 100 and 350 copies. Very different from conventional art and poetry magazines for the period in terms of content, design and distribution, 0 To 9 consisted mostly of original, language or idea-based contributions by artists and poets, establishing a new kind of "dematerialized" do-it-yourself exhibition context beyond the existing official gallery and magazine system.…


Assembling Press

Assembling eliminates the traditional authoritarianism of the conventional editorial process by asking its invited contributors to submit whatever they want on 1000 copies of up to three 8 1/2 x 11 sheets of paper, by any printing method, at their own initiative and their own expense.…

Aspen Magazine

Aspen is a multimedia magazine packaged in a cardboard box or folder—each issue includes pamphlets, posters, film, flexi-disc records and other art objects designed by artists. Advertisements proclaimed its radical format and wide-ranging contents: "you hear it, hang it, feel it, fly it, sniff it, play with it." The idea behind the periodicalcame from Phyllis Johnson who had previously been the editor of Women's Wear Daily and Advertising Age. She originally conceived of Aspen as a collection of materials that reflected the rich cultural and recreational experience available in the city of Aspen. Later, it became something resembling an art collection in a box, filled with artistic collaborations and experimentations with contributions from artists and musicians such as Eleanor Antin, Dan Graham, John Cage, Carolee Schneemann, Philip Glass, and Andy Warhol.…

Paul Soulellis, Occupying Plöger's Library

The value of the printed web is no longer in any one individual artist’s work. The printed web is now a historical archive within the archive, a set of relationships between publications that conserves some kind of rhizomatic mesh of the early web, with its openness and far-reaching roots and connections. The printed web is now a suspended view of a moment before the disappearance of search into thin air, recalling a specific time when we first lost touch with the tactility of the archive, but still enjoyed its visualization. …


Paul Soulellis, Occupying Plöger's Library

Long before this nostalgia would ever be identified, Wolfgang Plöger began printing the web; Plöger is the very first “printed web” artist. Using Google Image search, he started to transform individual words, phrases, names and dates into book objects in 2003. He constructs his narratives by gathering large collections of images, assembling them onto printed pages, and binding them into limited editions of books. …


Paul Soulellis, Occupying Plöger's Library

What is this project? Is it an archive? Perhaps, but then it’s also a timeline, a library, a collage, an encyclopedia, an atlas, a network, and a performance. It might be a kind of publishing; it traces Plöger’s artistic practice over a period of 13 years. This collection is like a mirror, and it sometimes appears to be a space. …


Paul Soulellis on Radical Software

Publishing that carries with it the spirit of resistance: “They thought reversing the process of television, giving people access to the tools of production and distribution, giving them control of their own images and, by implication, their own lives — giving them permission to originate information on the issues most meaningful to themselves — might help accelerate social and cultural change. Connectivity, the Videosphere, was an important part of the vision — an early stab at articulating the connected world, and a way to get there.”…
