“Workflow—the order of tasks in the realization of a project—is as important as outcome. This experiment explores how different workflows affect authorship and help build community. In this cross-institutional assignment, sophomores at MICA and Miami University pushed the boundaries of authorship. Working with the word POST, they co-created letterforms by receiving, altering and passing on files in a digital assembly line. This workflow dislocated authorship from the individual and placed it within the collective, as resultant letterforms aggregated into a final, animated sequence.” —ZvezdanaStojmirovic
