<Experimental Publishing Graduation show 2022 | WALKIE TALKIE>
"XPUB Calling, Do you Copy? Over (...)"
"(...) Go Ahead XPUB. Over"
"On it.(...)"

Graduating students of the Experimental Publishing Master (XPUB), Piet Zwart Institute, invite you to tune into the frequencies of their collective knowledge during an evening and afternoon in Worm (Rotterdam).

What are we transmitting?
Hegemonies of standardised languages, publishing act introspection, ultraterritorality and telecommunications, conversations on food, economies and alternative communities of the Web, participatory narratives, diffractive methodologies, hybrid reality gaming ... These seem all different sorts of waves but in fact they are very much connected. We invite you to eavesdrop on our signal exchanges.

• Date: Friday 24th - Saturday 25th June
••18:00 - 00:00 on the 24.06
••12:00 - 17:00 on the 25.06
•Location: UBIK & Slash Gallery

We are Kendal Beynon, Martin Foucaut, Camilo García A., Clara Gradel, Nami Kim, Euna Lee, Jacopo Lega, Federico Poni, Louisa Teichmann, and Floor van Meeuwen.

"Copy, over."

Today I want to present my 3rd issue of User Sentimental eXperience. It’s about using ‘console.log’ to console yourself!

<Issue3. Console yourself: A chocolate box>
*This work is the best experienced from the computer screen rather than mobile devices Sorry :p*

It's already June. Half of 2022 slipped away. We've been enduring all the pain and frustration from the tenacious pandemic for the last two years. To comfort your fatigue and admire your efforts, hereby I prepared a box of chocolate. I appreciate your persistence. Now I hope the moment of having the chocolate will be small comfort to you.
You've been doing great. Take a bite to console yourself!
To have a piece of it, you'll need to use a specific way though. Click the right button on the current page, and select 'inspect'. On the top menu you'll see a section called 'console'. (*It's not inspector!) In the console, write console.log(''). Inside the '', write any words you want to tell yourself. Any kinds of encouraging comments! (e.g. console.log('To honor my survival in the boring place'). Then press an 'Enter' key. Don't forget to write it inside ' ' mark.
Finally you'll console yourself and have the chocolate!

Here is the link:

*Any feedback/critique is welcome. Please let me know if the design breaks down from yr monitor.*
