Artists and publishers are being asked to make choices and address questions that are environmental, technical, aesthetic, legal and financial all at the same time. * carbon emissions from print/online content * should all content be free * effect of re-mix and Creative Commons on creators' rights * search engine uses of arts content * catalogues and zine publishing * art biography as online data bases emerge. Powerful climate change imagery, new work by emerging and established Australian artists, flows through the pages. Plus bonus review section: 17 recent books & catalogues.
