Unknown Quantities #7

From the Editors

There’s something rigidly predictable about publications. Magazines, books, journals and newspapers are fixed in form and concept, whether because of the superintended curation of content or the unalterable form of bound pages.

How do we subvert this?
Driven by this enquiry and inspired by the notion of fluidity in all its iterations – fluidity of process, of identity, of thought, of motive – we present Unknown Quantities 7, a publication that expands the solid realms of publishing itself, through a conceptual model and an eclectic collection of works and articles.
