MacGuffin #12: The Log
In this issue, MacGuffin takes a walk in the woods to explore the design and politics of timber. From the last Norwegian trunks that floated down the Glomma to the indigenous logs that help map the Amazon, and from Jamaican lacebark trees to online chatbots: meet the logs that function as totems, design tools, oracles, wormholes, comic figures, activist artworks, village idiots, prison cells, logbooks, nightmares and dreams.
Featuring: James Beckett, Basje Boer, Doriana Falcón, Formafantasma, José Bessa Freire, Rudy Guedj, Eliot Haworth, Khaled Jarrar, Emily King, Kai Lobjakas, Jente Posthuma, Olga Prader, Ellef Prestsæter, Lou-Lou van Staaveren, SulSolSal, Mirelle van Tulder, and many more. [publisher's note]
