Artifact Zine is a publication examining the material world and our systems of making.
Each issue features short essays, interviews, and analysis of the artifacts, manufacturing processes, and technologies running behind the scenes of everyday life.
The first issue, Formation, is an introduction to the questions Artifact Zine explores: why do we make, and how are we shaped by the technologies we use to produce those objects?

From coil pots and flint arrowheads to Eames chairs and AirPods, people understand their world and their past through the objects we design, build, sell, preserve, or discard. Artifact Zine takes an object-level view of human history and aspiration, to try to understand why we do it, what it means, and where we are going as a species.
