26 artists from different disciplines were invited to F: Photocopy Publication Project to produce a work where they questioned concepts such as ‘originality, copying, reproduction, distribution and format’ within the limited capabilities of the photocopier, abiding by the A5, A4 and A3 dimensions. Each artist responded to this invitation with a photocopy-work while involving their own professional practices. These experiments, which can be defined as a conceptual representation of the fanzine culture, turned into an original publication with their own names under the title of F.
Whatever the subject, material and production process are, the final work must be realized as a photocopy. Thus, F can be defined as a photocopy-publication, which leaves its copied original and its copy status behind by doing so becomes the source while dismissing the need to trace the source material which could be identified as the original. Some of these publications, all of which are open to examination and consumption, reserve their meaning in traditional codex format, while others find meaning in their formats of displaying. This project offers new possibilities of re-thinking and interpreting via photocopy, the most common means of printing in daily life, and the most familiar paper standards.
