More > memes, especially about the kind known as the image macro. The image macro – a picture combined with superimposed texts in order to produce a humorous effect – represents one of the most popular means of expression on the Internet for years. The assemblage of an image and a caption seems to respond to the call Walter Benjamin made in his book about Charles Baudelaire The Writer of Modern Life, a call for a new form of literacy more native to the image-saturated society of spectacle. Smetnjak have responded to this call by trying to practice critical theory within the pop form of meme, often focusing on the Slovenian cultural celebrity Slavoj Žižek. Here they explain why and how.< Less

Designing Desire: Towards an autonomous editorial practice By Dário Cannatà
Paperback: $8.99

Designing Desire: Towards an Autonomous Editorial Practice is an attempt to establish a personal positioning within the polarised practice of graphic design, commonly divided between persuasion and... More > communication. Through a general historical review focusing on the more recent advent of “critical design”, the thesis argues for the necessity of developing an autonomous practice to recover the social dimension of graphic design. Drawing from fields apparently distance from design, such as philosophy, chemistry or biology, we reach “memetics” as an evolutionary theory of mental content, capable of providing the necessary arguments to sustain a pertinent editorial design practice.< Less

TALES OF THE TELEMATIC By PHILLIP BALDWIN
Paperback: $20.42
Prints in 3-5 business days
what is narrative building? What is immersion? What is interactivity? What is 'therapy'? How does technology advance in a machine/mathematical global, finance 'neo-liberal' capitalism where the rich... More > get richer with off shore accounts and we have to get 'smarter' with our new cognitive work? Who is digging the ditches? Is it the ancient communion 'around the fire' a means of wrapping important memes up in a parasitic fashion to a linear, contrived plot? Should there be plot points in our complicated lives that seduce us further into the immersion of narrative forms? Urbanism, telematics, performance, architecture, design are made in very different ways now. The 'smartphone' is a ADD working prison cell as much as an instrument of 'freedom'. Pathologies abound from this combination of sequestered capital and our need to 'master' technologies with our pay to play entitlements. ...or our pay to play humanity.< Less
Autocorrect By Bill Holbrook

Autocorrect is never given enough credit. Despite working without a break, dealing with humanity’s unending errors and preventing an almost infinite number of spelling mishaps, she’s... More > mainly known for her failures instead of her successes. She soldiers on in the face of constant and withering criticism and as such, she fits in well with the rest of the “On the Fastrack” staff. She found happiness in 2015 with her wedding to Percy the Computer Bug, but even this did not come off without drama. One of her exes appeared, she renewed her rivalry with Siri and even worse, she became a meme. Still, it all worked out, mainly from enlisting Dethany as her wedding planner. In other Fastrack events, Emails were hacked, Lenore the raven became a stepmother, little Curt’s visual language came in handy and the year concluded with a steampunk office holiday party. No, Autocorrect. Don’t change “Steampunk” to “Streptococcus.”< Less
