California College of the Arts (CCA) is pleased to announce that it will assume publication of the online contemporary arts journals Art Practical (AP) and Daily Serving (DS), effective immediately.

This creates the unprecedented opportunity for the two publications to continue to serve a broad community while enabling students to learn professional skills in publishing and to conceive of new audiences for their ideas.

As the publisher, CCA will serve as the fiscal agent for Art Practical and Daily Serving. The two publications have been run as independent entities since their founding in 2006 (DS) and 2009 (AP).

Each will retain its core mission, editorial vision, and autonomy in all areas, including content, staffing, and programming.

Ware's novel, which Callahan bought, is about a crime writer who wakes up in the hospital after attending a bachelorette party in the English countryside.

Thor (Þorfinnur) Guðnason and Lynn Kirby

In 1985 documentary filmmaker Thor (Þorfinnur) Guðnason (BFA Film/Video 1988) was just starting his career, a journey that has led him to great success, when he graduated from CCA.

Since then he has made award-winning documentaries with worldwide distribution (National Geographic, TBS, ARTE, ZDF, NRK, TVP, Discovery Europe, etc.).

And like most young artists, Guðnason had many interests when he began his career, but it wasn’t until inspiration struck that he was able to pursue his passion in earnest.

Inspired by Filmmaking

“When I saw David Lynch's film Eraserhead, something struck a nerve in me,” says Guðnason. “I knew what I wanted to do with the rest of my life: make films and tell stories.”

This revelation brought clarity of purpose, but realizing intent is only part of the process of becoming; actualization requires sacrifice.

For Guðnason it required leaving his Icelandic home, where no film programs existed, in search of cinematic opportunities abroad.

As design visualization software becomes more ubiquitous and easier to use, the novelty of digital form for the sake of digital form is wearing off. These exponentially evolving conception and fabrication techniques can now be applied to existing design problems that do not traditionally involve digital technologies bring a fresh perspective to an established craft.
