KERB 22 Launches

Kerb 22: Remoteness Launch from Melbourne Books on Vimeo.

The 22nd edition of KERB – Journal of Landscape Architecture launched at the RMIT University Design Hub in Melbourne, Australia. The journal is unique in being compiled and edited each year by a small group of students, who select a range of articles pertinent to the dedicated theme of each edition. The theme for KERB 22 is remoteness.

Kerb 22 interrogates the notion of remoteness from four viewpoints, identifying opportunities of engagement within spaces balancing on the edge of tangibility, or deeply virtually sited. This issue of Kerb aims to establish connectivity between the entities that lie within a greater territory, calling for the interrogation of space. Whether through the distribution of physical settlements or through the definition of virtual boundaries, mediating the divide places remoteness within a near-instantaneous reach; enabling us to grasp and employ the remote as a tool for spatial negotiation.

Contributors for KERB 22 include Benjamin H. Bratton, Mond Qu, Tiago Torres-Campos, Ryan Dewey, Alex Breedon, Gross.Max, Frances Edith Cooper, José Alfredo Ramirez/Clara Olóriz, Pierre Bélanger, Rene Van Meeuwen, Michael Light, Casey Lance Brown/Rob Holmes, James Ramsey, Ja Kyung Kim, William Clancey, Mario Accordino/Jarrad Newman, Lateral Office, Natalya Egon/Noel Turgeon, Niki Kakali/Anastasia Kotenko, Ian Strange, Jock Gilbert and Shaun Gladwell
