On the Upgrade is a publishing series that explores the relationship between online artistic production and print publishing.

The series looks at the processes of translation of artworks that, originally created for, 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.

On the Upgrade also functions as an offline archive of web-based artworks. Artworks that, with each new print project, respond to the site-specificity of the chosen format, a format conceived as an expansion of the original site of display, the artworks’ source (our website).
