‘Content free’ means just that: the content on this site is free. Free at the point of demand, and free in expression and opinion. It is a portal into a world of thinking and making. It is a living archive of reflection and activity. It is the place where the students and staff from the Visual Communication programme at the RCA can freely place ‘content’, and where visitors are free to browse and interact with what they find.

In the electronic era, with its always-on, limitless landscape to fill, content has become a weasel word – a generic flavourless noun that relegates words, images, sound and film as placeholder material. Our use of the word is of course, ironic. We take the view that content has to have meaning and offer engagement. Without meaning and engagement, it is just that … content.

Aquatint

I see aquatint as a metonym of symbiotic destruction. Acid ruins zinc while zinc ruins acid. The acid slowly eats zinc. But interaction with zinc, in turn, eventually weakens acid’s ability to corrode molecules of metal. In this hybridisation behind the dry chemical process, there is a thin layer of varnish and immense landscape for art...

Report on the state of grey affairs. Tuesday 26 January 2021

A month or so ago, before the end of the year, I went for a walk. I wanted to go and walk up to the the most elevated landmark nearby. I wanted to arrive there for sunset, to see the sky turn pink and to look at the golden hour shining over the whole landscape. I ...
