e-flux began as a mailing list in 1998 as artists and curators started experimenting with promoting exhibitions using email. It later evolved to include an online exhibition platform and a monthly journal distributed both digitally and in print. Triple Canopy, founded nearly a decade later, draws inspiration from twentieth-century avant-garde magazines such as Aspen and Wyndham Lewis’s Blast while also pushing the formal boundaries of online publishing. In the 2012 essay “The Binder and the Server,” originally published in Art Journal, Triple Canopy’s senior editor Colby Chamberlain outlines some of the challenges and possibilities offered by publishing on the internet. 4Columns was launched less than a year ago as “a website of art criticism aimed at a general audience” and publishes four reviews weekly.
As you read these articles, pay attention to how your digital reading experience compares to reading print magazines. How do unique features like Triple Canopy’s horizontal layout and multimedia presentations affect your relationship to what you’re reading?
