A publication featuring work by students in “Newly Formed”—an advanced graphic design course at the Rhode Island School of Design.
Reformed 3 spotlights a selection of new compositions produced for Newly Formed, a course which focuses on experimental form-making and image-making using iterative and generative approaches. The publication includes posters, typography, and treated and manipulated images, as well as a short text about the publication.
The central section features fourteen portraits: each design student in the class wearing a mask they created or invented. Hiding in plain sight, behind and within their work, these images can serve as a metaphor for the relationship between a designer and their work: designers are always part of the designs they create, however modulated their presence may be.
Featuring work by Noah Beckwith, Olivia de Salve Villediu, Helen Gao, Joel Kern, Mei Lenehan, Eunice Li, Jenny Li, Izzi Mordini, Jinhwa Oh, Marie Otsuka, Jay Park, Yeon Ryoo, Kendra Xu, and Can Yang.

This richly illustrated volume retells the history of net art from the 1980s to the present day through thematic essays and interview extracts.
It centers around the 100 works selected, restored and presented as part of the Net Art Anthology initiative, which originated as an online exhibition series in 2016 and continued with a touring gallery exhibition through January 2019. Featured artists include Morehshin Allahyari, Cory Arcangel, Shu Lea Cheang, DIS, Constant Dullaart, Cécile B. Evans, exonemo, Cao Fei, Lynn Hershman Leeson, JODI, Oliver Laric, Olia Lialina, Eva & Franco Mattes, Jayson Musson, Paper Rad, Pope.L, Jon Rafman, Rafaël Rozendaal, Wolfgang Staehle, Martine Syms, Ryan Trecartin, UBERMORGEN, Amalia Ulman, Artie Vierkant, Miao Ying and others.
The book and exhibition are the work of Rhizome, the born-digital art organization founded by artist Mark Tribe in 1996. Leveraging more than two decades of experience with net art and digital culture, The Art Happens Here represents Rhizome’s most complete effort to date to contextualize the art forms it champions.
Bringing to life the artistic communities, the surrounding social and political realities, and the changing technological contexts that have shaped artistic uses of the internet over a period of decades, The Art Happens Here features a unique design by Jiminie Ha/With Projects. Intended to function as an “informational object,” the book boasts a chroma-key green cover, “scrolling” text that spills off the top and bottom of the page and wraps around the back cover and images that ask the reader to rotate the book as they would a smartphone.
Edited by Michael Connor, Aria Dean, and Dragan Espenschied.

A powerful new monograph showcasing the defining elements and architectural anatomy at the very heart of Pawson’s work.
This monograph, the latest volume in Phaidon’s documentation of John Pawson’s stellar career, hones in on the essential details that mark his distinctive architectural and aesthetic style. It groups a selection of his recent works into domestic projects, including his own house in rural England; extended sacred spaces; and repurposed structures, such as London’s Design Museum. Throughout its pages, this book explores Pawson’s unique approach to proportion and light and his precise language of windows, doors, and walls.
