Fount magazine is an independently published magazine about mash-up culture.
We examine the convergences of a globalized society and its effect on creative fields. How can we as a society benefit from the principle of mash-up on a cultural and social level? The potential is showcased by our unique open call – artists from all over the world sent us their interpretation of our theme "plant a mountain", a representation of the courage we need to muster when we start something new. The artworks we received were then given to another artist from another creative discipline, who interpreted it in his/her own style.
In our article we show successful thinking outside the box: how LEDs become art, how industrial waste is turned into new materials or what we could learn from listening to plants.
