ON THE UPGRADE

WYSIWYG

On the Upgrade is the publishing series of or-bits.com that explores the relationship between artistic production and distribution online and print publishing. The projects within the series look at processes of translation of artistic material which, originally created for a website, migrate to a different site, taking up different forms and formats, in print. On the Upgrade considers the possibilities, limitations and characteristics inherent in the movement between sites of creation, display, dissemination and engagement in relation to the increasingly broader notion of publishing. It also functions as an offline archive of material and artworks firstly presented on or-bits.com that, with each new project, respond to the site-specificity of the chosen print format, a format conceived as an expansion of the original site of display, its source (our website).

On the Upgrade started in September 2011 within or-bits.com off-site activities such as gallery exhibitions, events and workshops.
