Blender Architecture was asked by Philadelphia artist Amze Emmons to assist in designing a display for his exhibition, titled Publisher! Publisher!. Emmons collaborated with twenty publishers from around the world, compiling a collection of their publications, ranging from: high-end art magazines, newsprint pamphlets, various zines, and underground comics. Blender Archtitecture was charged with developing a flexible display system that could allow for multiple size and type of reading material to be seen, a simple installation by volunteers, and produced on a tight budget. The standard 24"x48" peg-board, hung from the existing 24"x48" ceiling grid system became our base unit from which we developed various 'reading rooms' within the gallery.
