ARC (formally ARK) is a student-led publication that began in 2004 following a long-hiatus of the original independent ARK magazine that ran from 1950 to 1978. It exists to provide a platform for the RCA’s top talent(students, staff and alumni) to engage in exciting philosophical and theoretical debates, and for students to dip their toes into the waters of journalism and continually refresh and reinterpret the format of printed matter.
We would like to thank all our contributors from within the RCA for their exceptional work that helped shape the original concept of Proxyerotics for this year's ARC publication. We would like to extend our gratitude to Tess Piggott, the MA Writing administrator for all her hard work assisting us. We would also like to thank Orit Gat, Pauline van Mourik Broekman, Rachael Allen, Karen DiFranco and Neil Parkinson for their invaluable insight and encouragement. We would like to thank our Designers William Jacobson, Costas Kalogeropoulos and Scott Jones for their hard work and innovation in helping realise our cross-platform conception. We would also like to extend our appreciation to Max Kohler, who helped start the development of our website. Finally we would like to give a special thank you to Emily LaBarge, our tutor and guiding hand in this process. Without her dedication and enthusiasm in assisting us to push the boundaries of what a publication could be, we may have never ended up where we are now.
