Information As Material

Information as material (iam) was formally established by the English artist Simon Morris in 2002 but has its roots in his self-published books of the late 1990s.

Based in the North of England, iam operates as a collective of writer-editors and as an independent imprint that publishes work by artists who use extant material — selecting it and reframing it to generate new meanings — and who, in doing so, disrupt the existing order of things.

The imprint’s activities involve writing, publishing, exhibiting, curating, web-based projects, lectures and workshops. Iam’s editorial team is Craig Dworkin, Simon Morris and Nick Thurston.
