Wintersession 2021

v.1 is very pleased to launch 2 new participatory experimental publishing platforms:

  1. an idle atlas: a space for mapping an intuitive navigation, where you may trace your walking routes alongside mine
  2. headlines: where you can contribute your v.1 essay without having to write one of those pesky v.1 essays.

these sites accumulate the marks and words of students over time, creating an incidental archive of the wanderings and wonderings of our community. please explore and enjoy.
