To commemorate the Free Art and Technology Lab’s five-year anniversary, the group has released a free book chronicling many of their projects, each of which has been developed using open source software and shared online in such a way that easily allows for anyone to copy or modify them as they see fit.
F.A.T.: The Manual features selection of more than 100 projects, and has been created in the belief that indexing these works in print will allow them to spread in a different way, outside of the internet. The book is described by F.A.T’s members as an “archive, a catalogue, a user manual and a software handbook documenting five years of thug life, pop culture and research and development.”
