Call for submission for KOTE #6

Wait - Photo by Einar Elton

In KOTE #6 we will explore what borders are and how they influence us. From the imaginary to the physical. From intimate border to territorial borders.

We will investigate which spaces are the results of various limits. The city has many borders with various meanings. How are they influenced by non-physical borders, for example a school district? The city has curbs, bollards, hedges, walls and intersections. The movement of people is formed by borders, but is it only physical borders that dictate where we go?

In the discourse involving borders, who is speaking on borderlands? What happens when the border becomes a place?

Send in your text, draft or ideas by January 16th to KOTE!

Planned release Autumn 2015.

Magazine release!


Christmas comes early this year. Thursday this week we are releasing the fifth issue of KOTE magazine – an independent journal on our physical surroundings. Coming out twice a year, this has been the first issue I have been co-editing, which has been very exciting!

KOTE 5 asks what effects form and design have on us. What feels wrong, and what feels just right? How tall can we build? How small can a flat be? Are increasing demands for technical quality overshadowing the vision for experienced quality? How great are the designer’s freedom opposed to decicive authority, and to what degree do we focus on the actual effects our physical surroundings have on people? Read the rest of this entry »
