eShelf is a collection of artists’ online publishing activities and a series
of events introducing digital publishing projects, initiatives and resources,
initiated and curated by London based artist Rahel Zoller.
Her aims were to showcase a selection of online independent publishing activities, showing examples of creative and experimental uses of online publishing, and also to bring together publishers working across similar digital platforms.
She wanted to create a platform where she could demonstrate and share a variety of different projects that were happening in such an exciting and diverse field, one that is undergoing a substantial redefinition and having to adapt to so many cultural changes.
eShelf is meant to be a snapshot, or observation, of the here and now. Rahel Zoller compiled an A - Z of online publishing activities into the eShelf, which is indexed online at www.eshelf.info. We first began posting a countdown from A-Z on the eShelf on the 18th of April, beginning with A, and ending with Z on the 18th of May 2012.We invited publishers and individuals to introduce their publishing activities at a series of talks held at X Marks the Bökship.
An exhibition was organised at X Marks the Bökship at the end of the series.
