v.1 is a publishing platform for the ongoing work, ideas, discussions, debates, and aspirations of students at the Rhode Island School of Design. v.1 strives to create space and time for conversations across diverse disciplines, cultures, and perspectives. Its form and content are endlessly flexible — it's always “volume 1.”
In addition to editing and designing v.1 during the 2018-2019 academic year, I profiled renowned stonecarver Nick Benson for “Written in Stone: Lineage, Legacy, and Letterforms,” which first appeared alongside a photo essay in the Fall 2018 print issue. The story is also published online at volume-1.org, where all v.1 content is posted and archived.
