VARIOUS LOCATIONS PLANNED

Geofictions: Work in Progress
by Zara Arshad and Yaloo
2021

Geofictions is a research-driven speculative art/design studio that I co-founded with Seoul- and Chicago-based media artist, Yaloo.

In late 2019, Geofictions was awarded an artist residency by the Pier-2 Art Center in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, alongside funding by the Incheon Foundation for Arts & Culture, South Korea. Due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, however, our participation in the Pier-2 Art Center’s 2020 programme had to be postponed, and so we were asked by Incheon Foundation to create an alternative outcome with our grant. The research publication shown here, called Geofictions: Work in Progress, is the product of this unexpected process. Click to read the book’s introductory text, which explains the direction and contents of the volume in more detail.

Physical copies of Geofictions: Work in Progress are held by the following UK institutions: The British Library, and the libraries of University of Brighton, Royal College of Art, and Goldsmiths, University of London.
