In May 2022, mobile strategies (of display & mediation, aka msdm)  – incubated and hosted a one-day event at the Borough Road Gallery, intersecting three experimental publishing projects- liquid memories,
road less travelled press vol.0/1 and photobook popup,  representing distinctive modes of collective publishing.

Liquid memories ~ to read with water, developed with 23 co-authors, through a commission and residency (Jan - Mar 2021),  displayed the loose sections in a live editorial lab installation. Visitors were invited
to create their own ‘liquid memories,’ by selecting from the 55 unbound sections – including pamphlets, posters, cards and photographs – and compiling their personalised photobook, 
an individual  constellation of printed matter from the exhibition installation. Each reader took from 40 minutes to 2 hours to complete the process, which included creating the clear enclosure, printing it with a unique monotype of acrylic gold, folding  and cutting specific sections, registering the edition number
and signing their own “original copy.”
