Pilot Publishing was initiated by Ella Gibbs and Amy Plant in 2004 following the project Laburnum Pilot – A Street Magazine. Since then they have worked together and with communities in a variety of locations from allotment gardens to underground stations. With an expanded notion of 'Publishing', the artists activate alternatives inspired by and for communication. Each project is guided by a 'rule' or set of rules and is a 'Pilot'. So the larger projects are often prototypes, experiments or tests, with longevity in mind. Ella lives in London and Amy has lived in the US since 2011.
