An experimental journey probing the role of books in the digital era.
What will become of books in the digital age? From digitalization to how fonts are used, swissnex San Francisco’s exhibition The Book Lab showcases nine projects born in Swiss, Californian, and French higher education institutions that probe the next chapter for the book.
Take an experimental journey from paper to code with Back in Black, a project that translates a magazine article for the digital medium. Imagine tools that empower familiar books to provide complex visualizations and generative designs in Basil.js. Investigate an artist’s creative practice with a digital pen, dive into transmedia tales of Zurich at night, and much much more.
