︎ Press Release
ZGRIPTOR is an independent journal exploring the intersections between material and digital culture. It aims to promote discussion about how technology will reshape ideas around community action, communication, and the arts.

The goal of this publication is to create a space for conversation in order to make academic writing and criticism accessible and engaging. Many young writers feel academic journals are dry places - constrained by their niche communities and inaccessible to those not already a part of them. Similarly, the art world can appear to be elitist, and creatives may not think they possess the authority or agency to participate in its discussions.

The aim of ZGRIPTOR is to prove this wrong! I want to create an interdisciplinary platform to fuel collaborative thinking and create a space for all kinds of work to enter into a dialogue with one another.

With a focus on contextualisation and an imperative that educational discussions must be accessible, this will be a place for brainstorming and showcasing new ideas about art, promoting independent visual spaces, and creating  experimental modes of public engagement with art and academia both.
