What's your approach in print magazines dealing with internet culture?
Our print magazine Junk Jet is a transporter. As transporter it is a container moving contents from one place to another. At the same time, it is an archive that, while moving, stores its contents carefully (a sort of form finding). The net.heart issue, which is the latest one, has transferred internet things from their digital space into a paper jet. This transportation procedure relies on documents in a similar way as the museum relies on photograph and video documenting performance arts. And Junk Jet believes that this analogue documentation is in no way inferior to pseudo-preserving techniques of data migration, emulation, or reprogramming. At the end, Junk Jet says: Transportation is not so much about the artwork as object, but rather about the indication of the subjective decision of the artist. Junk Jet approaches internet as a conceptual phenomenon.
