I received my Artist’s proof of CONTAINER last week, the exploration of what form might look for the future of magazines curated, produced and edited by Tim Milne from ARTOMATIC.

I was delighted to be in the company of fellow contributors Accept & Proceed, James Bridle, Daniel Eatock, Malcolm Garrett, David Hieatt, Leila Johnson, Mother, Rebecca & Mike, Nic Roope & Violetta Boxhill.

Now, I’d been saying to Tim (for about two months) that I’d write a wee blog post about my contribution.  But I haven’t.  Instead, I’ve done a wee unboxing video. What was surprising to me was that even though I was part of the project, and knew roughly about everything else that was going in, how much more it made me think unpacking and holding everything for the first time.

(you can get CONTAINER here btw)


PS – there are undoubtedly people buying this who consider themselves ‘collectors’ of things… hoping that the early stage things they buy go up in value.  I think though we’re going to use ALL of the things at home somehow; I’ll post up what we do with each item perhaps.


One response to “CONTAINER: Unleashed”

  1. Wow! Love it. Particularly nice to see you unwrap and talk about each piece. Very beautiful and of course, totally love and in awe of your contribution for so many reasons. Great stuff. Well done Tim and well done John.
