Is the Internet Down?

Draw Down

Written in response to work by featured designers and artists, Is the Internet Down? weaves together pop culture references and statistical facts about the greatest network of our time. The publication playfully examines the history of the Internet, with nods to world domination; the physical and emotional cost to humans; network fragility; pornography; and cinematic depictions of cyberspace.

Nice to Meet You

Can Yang

After graduating from the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) in 2018, Chinese graphic designer Can Yang traveled to Chile. This zine captures the sights and emotions of that trip. With a keen eye, Yang translates her encounters with commercial culture into works that map the relationship between plastic people—mannequins of all sizes and shapes — and layered multi-lingual observations.
