The issue at hand is the result of our work over the past few months. It is an objectification of our ideas and research, our considerations and discussions as well as our co-operations. In short, this issue objectifies various information, which, while it may not be objective per se, determines the design process.
Every process has a moment of exposure (in our case print) as a point of no return, where corrections and updates are no longer possible. Seen from this perspective, our work is similar to that of designers. Which of the many possible objectifications designers happen to choose, the addressee they approach, the medium they opt for or the material, which appears suitable to them – decisions always have to be made. These decisions can be right or wrong, but in any case, all objects or facts are on the point of disappearing again from the outset. They get lost, fall apart or become obsolete – that is simply in their nature.
