(Re)Take Part in Further Reading Print No.2: Boundaries

We have made the decision to reopen the submission for #FRPrint2, which previously due to out in Q2 2020.

As we reflect, the current situation will eventually shift the way we behave in the future and it means that we will need to change the way we respond to our socio-cultural situation, nature and inevitably, the way we operate and navigate our design practice. We think it only relevant to document and raise the conversations about or surrounding these ideas/thoughts.

While physical borders might be limited or closed down, the world is now more "open and connected". Our private spaces are now "public" (private space, public sphere). We shift the way we consume and not consume things (information, foods, etc.). We begin to reevaluate our relationship with ourselves and our surroundings, that is nature. We are certainly living in a history-making moment.

With these in mind, we would like to reinvite you to take part in the upcoming Further Reading Print No.2: Boundaries by submitting your new works that resonate with these ideas/thoughts. The submissions could focus on any topic in the design practice and is not limited by any discipline and formats.

The selected submissions will be published alongside the accepted submissions (from our first open call) to make up a publication that is "in-between". #FRPrint2 will discuss persistently relevant ideas/thoughts from the "old" (pre-COVID-19) that we should carry or continue alongside the "new".

Deadline for submissions is 3 July 2020 (GMT+7 midnight). The publication is due to out in Q3 2020.
