FRUIT OF THE FOREST #4
THE INFINITY ISSUE
The word “infinity” has led us to the concept of the archive, to symbolism, to NASA images, to interpreting history, to artistic practices stumbling once again upon the 1960s and 1970s, and to theradical movements as if in the players and in the history of those investigations we might find our own identity, the foundations of an interdisciplinary way of thinking.

THE IMPERFECTION ISSUE
Imperfection is one of the terms that most characterizes the contemporary aesthetic. Imperfection today has the taste of auto-production, of the inexact, of dynamism and sophistication.

THE NUMBER ZERO
Welcome to issue zero of Fruit of the Forest design magazine.
Fruit of the Forest is a free magazine conceived and designed for the iPad and Internet. It can be experienced as a multimedia magazine on a tablet, or downloaded and read in a linear format.
There is a section dedicated to cities and to the paths we follow to navigate through them and to experience them. Two main articles introduce points of view, ideas and theories on contemporary design. A series of columns on subjects ranging from graphic design to materials and history explore the ability of design to relate to the world, to aesthetics, and to technology.
And finally, there is a collection of photographs, where we invite photographers to submit snapshots from their ramblings.
This is issue zero, an issue where errors get turned into ideas.
