Richard Turley was the final speaker rounding off last month’s Nicer Tuesdays Online and he told us how he’s been killing the hours while stuck at home in New York. While “getting through the day is the main objective” as “every day is its own universe,” Richard has been using the time to “think and ponder” as well as releasing the last two issues of Civilization.
A project which deals with the “dissonance of living in a city that shouts at you all the time,” he considered releasing a digital version of the publication, but decided firmly against it. Instead, he has been sending out IRL newsletters to those who request them, personalising each one in some way. In a time when contact is being denied, he explained, it’s been a way of regaining that as the paper is actually passed from hand-to-hand. And what he realised along the way, were the benefits of working in such a hands-on manner, of reclaiming control of the production process and the “beautiful accidents” that happen along the way.
