The printed page has always been a portal into another world. There is nothing quite like that moment when you first open a new book or magazine, when you feel its weight, catch that inky smell coming off its pages, and run your fingertips over the paper. Today, the screen has become the more prolific medium for information exchange. Instead of flicking pages, we are spending more time scrolling through screens.
It is not the death knell for print just yet. It can be hard to remember that paper, too, is just another medium. Replacing a physical page with digital screens is just moving from one medium to another.
The State of Print aims to spark conversations on the place of the printed matter in a digital age. No matter the medium – whether it’s pulp or pixels – our human desire to create, connect and communicate is unceasing.
