Documenting the process

What I have learned

Transcribing and interviewing with the ethics of this method
Meeting all these people outside the context of the school was a very interesting part of the process, as I had to deal with realistic situations. Having input from different guest tutors that were introducing the same topic from a different point of view it was also very helpful in my research
I have learned different perceptions and aspects of publishing but mainly on a theoretical basis. I would expect these methods to be more embedded in our process
To manage all these chaotic inputs and arrange constantly meetings in the group gave me the ability to work at present time and organise roughly but effectively every time my thoughts.

From the book process I've learned to organise my time better for a project, make quick decisions, edit a book from the start to the end, work with riso printers, being more consistent to my work and my opinions by giving better alternatives that follow my principles.


Editorial meetings and discussions about the coherence of content and design. They were short and temporal procedures. Conversations and meetings-sometimes accidental- with guest tutors, people from PG, former students of PZI, interviewers, researchers.
Figuring out the network and the connections of PG with other contexts, institutions and archives. Sharing transcriptions, pads, online documents, conversations in apps with the editorial and design team

Where do I want to go

Publishing my work on a way that is more suitable for me. For example, taking care of the license and what I want to say and how. I would like to treat license as a project in which I experiment with and deconstruct the meaning of it.

Being more free to organise with the team the whole project by taking all the decisions organically
Experiment with wiki as a local archive and network and a tool of intervention into the public spheres of the net
