A resource for inspiration with an emphasis on typography, interactive design and space.



XYM is a web-based project bringing you the longest short-term temporary and transient yet constant database of possibilities to download each individual Portable Data Format (.pdf) Artists Publication. Presenting a wide range of artists with a multi-disciplinary content, each issue is specifically created for the project, where one artist becomes the author and editor of a history making free-downloadable pdf file with a rapidly nearing best before date and incubation as its’ future.

Activated on its’ moment of release on www.xym.no, individually varying but at the same time permanent countdown periods are programmed to each publication with innumerable possibilities between one second and infinity. Within the given format, not exceeding the desktop-printable A4 and a download friendly 25 MB, a self-generating arts periodical creates a launching base for a diverse number of artistic projects, literally functioning between the margins of your computer screen and the edges of your desk.”
