Thanks to Nicole Sansone for her engaging and inventive series of posts exploring the difference between systems and networks.
Up next is graphic designer Kelly Rakowski. As Head of the Book Department at Todd Oldham Studio, she designs and edits art books, including the recently published Kid Made Modern, a book of children’s crafts inspired by mid-century modern design. Kelly also participates in Hit Factorie, an artist collective whose members created FEAST (Funding Emerging Artists with Sustainable Tactics) and HIT BOOK! An obsessive collector of digital/online images and archives, Kelly uses her website (Nothing is New) to delve into deep Internet lands, surfacing with visual treasures meant to prompt thought, creativity, and action. In a dynamic example of how historic images may enliven new ideas, Kelly has just opened a NisN shop, where she sells goods of her own design inspired by images on view at Nothing is New.
