Remote*Control by East of Borneo

Remote*Control is an assemblage of essays, email diaries, experimental syllabi, memes, and observations produced by artist faculty at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Classical typography collides with remnants of video conferencing interfaces, text glitches, and illustration to evoke the disorienting, ad hoc experience of learning and teaching in the COVID era and its subsequent erosion of institutional norms and control.

These illustrations shift in resolution as bodies of water diffuse into droplets then congeal into typographic forms.

The book was digitally printed with neon pink ink swapped in for the magenta channel, resulting in glowing, saturated imagery reminiscent of on screen color.
