All found images and online texts take on a new meaning when the Library of the Printed Web challenges the concept of publishing and decides to create printed matter from screen-captured images and site scrape.
Despite what you may have heard – this is another proof that print isn’t dead. Published by the Library of the Printed Web, ‘Printed Web’ is the first publication dedicated wholly to web-to-print art. It is an experimental magazine that explores the relationships between the web, the artist and print publishing.
Founded in 2013 by artist Paul Soulellis, the Library of the Printed Web has been collecting works from all over the world and also exists as a physical archive – located now in Long Island City, New York. It is not surprising how well the collection lends itself to being showcased in a number of exhibitions worldwide. Also, anyone interested is welcome to contribute work or suggest an artist to be included in the library’s list.
