The theme for Orlando Issue 0 is ‘proto’—signifying beginnings, fresh ideas, and new inspirations—and situating the inaugural issue as a prototype and testing ground. This experimental first issue introduces the voice of an emerging generation, in flux, interested in establishing grass-roots projects, multidisciplinary practice, and casting a refreshing new light on out-dated attitudes and ideas. Their voices are united by a like-minded attitude towards a notion of the collective, progressive social values, and a belief that sharing resources and ideas is key for innovative production. Topics range from artistic inspirations, discovery and travel, the documentary format, finding your voice, and organising DIY exhibitions or creative projects.
Orlando 0 is edited by Philomena Epps, with contributions from India Doyle, Nellie Eden, Theo Gordon, Hyunjee Nicole Kim, Jasmine Pitt, Alexa Sidor, Alex Tatusian, Josie Rae Turnbull, and Jane Wells.
