v.1 is RISD's graduate student–led publication. Its form and content change from year to year (always being "volume 1"). v.1 establishes an interdisciplinary community of conversation that surfaces and documents ideas, themes, discussions, debates, work, and aspirations of graduate study at RISD while they are fresh. Creating a representative, open, and generous window into our practices, v.1 also contributes to the wider public discourse around art and design.
