Repurposing Riso

“Repurposing Riso” features original research examining the many ways risograph machines are used, particularly in the Bay Area. Applying theoretical concepts from the domain of science, technology, and society (STS) studies, it is informed by interviews with local artists as well as representatives of YouTube, the Facebook Analog Research Laboratory, and Standard Business Machines (a local RISO dealer). Published for the 2019 Los Angeles Zine Fest, it is available in Oakland at Wolfman Books, Berkeley at Pegasus Books, and Chicago at Quimby’s.
