As we live our lives increasingly through virtual interfaces, our relationship to analog technologies becomes more fetishized and our understanding of community becomes progressively networked. How do we communicate? How do we publish? What is signal and what is noise? These are some of the questions that designer, author, and teacher Paul Soulellis tackles in his work, which investigates the intersection of experimental publishing, network culture, and artistic practice. Soulellis’s design studio Counterpractice tackles design and branding projects, including the overarching identity design and branding strategy for the TEDx Conferences. Soulellis is also contributing editor at the new media art platform Rhizome.org, a professor at the Rhode Island School of Design, and founder of the Library of the Printed Web, an archive of web-to-print artist works.
