A Week in the Lab

Last December, we invited designer Elana Schlenker (Pittsburgh) and illustrator Ryan Johnson (Oakland) to join us in the Analog Research Lab for a week-long mini residency experiment. Both had participated in residencies individually — Elana in 2016, and Ryan in 2018. Although we had developed a detailed plan for the week, it was still a gamble any of it would work out. The Current Situation has unfortunately prevented fully realizing the results of their projects, but each created something that now feels increasingly relevant.
