Plethora Magazine Issue No. 7
Plethora Magazine issue #7- Automaton – investigates the fragmentation of the human body image through the upsurge of new cybernetic technologies, the gradual mechanization of the human sphere and the promise of a truly artificial consciousness here on the verge of technological singularity.
Plethora Magazine is an independent, biannual publication founded in Copenhagen which challenges the bounds of the conventional magazine format — conceptually as well as physically (70x50cm).
More akin to a curated selection of fine art prints the magazine serves up a novel and thought-provoking take on the approach to printed matter which is both infinitely slower than your average glossy mag and excessive enough in format to seriously put the size of any coffee table to the test.
Skillfully printed by the monks of a Hindu temple, Plethora Magazine pays homage to the unique qualities of artisanal printing tradition and offers a purist vision for the future expression of the printed magazine - along with a quiet ode to all things left behind by fast track digitization. No noise, no ads and no logos, just 52 pages of poster-size visual indulgence and tales from the life less
ordinary presented in a careful blend of quirky archive material, wondrous art prints and contemporary artist features.
