Social Media in Brick & Mortar

BY JEN & JULIA PISTONE & DEWHURST
@ VOL 1 ON JAN 24, 2013

Jen Pistone and Julia Dewhurst explain the role social media plays in making small local shops profitable, and how to best use the various media outlets to bring in new customers, create an online presence, and build a community around their store. They utilize a variety of means from the seemingly simple photos of a day in the shop, to collaborations with other artists and engineering posts based on statistics and feedback.

Virtual vs. Habitable Space

BY VIVIANA DE LOERA
@ VOL 26 ON SEP 27, 2013

Virtual Poetry

BY SERGIO RAMOS
@ VOL 11 ON OCT 10, 2015

Computers have been around for a while now but in some ways they have remained underused. Just like a paint brush can be used to paint a door or to paint a piece of art, the computer has the same duality. Just like the paint brush, the computer requires a skill set to explore its creative and poetic potential. Sergio Ramos discusses how computers allow us to create virtual poetry. When this was realized, preconceived notions of how a computer should be used, have been restricting us from looking into how the computer works and how can one extrapolate its processes.

BY RONNIE CLARKE
@ VOL 11 ON MAY 06, 2016
