Two new projects filtering through the feed that caught my eye. One is the handiwork of Jeffery Bowers, THE PRISIM INDEX. Limited edition, handmade, silkscreened, mixed-media book complete with images (DVD) and sound (CD) featuring a gratuitous amount of artists. It’s the kind of project most editor’s cringe at and you’ve got to admire not only the quality of the work but the sheer gumption of the undertaking. Not to mention the interesting Kickstarter video. See a tour of the mag itself below.

Augmented reality using the smartphone allows the participant to visualize digital images “collaged” over the present location, as seen through the phone’s camera. Although this superimposition of visual information onto the landscape is an additive process, décollage: torn exteriors implies instead a tearing away of existing surfaces.
