The South Shore Journal is an open access peer reviewed general on-line journal. The Journal is co-sponsored by the NWI Quality of Life Council and the IU Northwest Center for Urban and Regional Excellence. This journal provides a South Shore venue for area scholars to focus their attention and academic resources on the region and allows the editors of the journal the ability to showcase the outstanding scholarly work of faculty, students and alumni in Northwest Indiana. The scholarly and creative work published will ideally represent a broad range of academic disciplines, and be inspired by the QLC regional quality indicators that include: a diverse community where residents are treated with equity and dignity, an economically thriving region, a region of opportunity, a region in balance with its' environment, a region that facilitates learning and intellectual growth, a healthy community, a region of open neighborhoods, an accessible community, a safe community, a region that appreciates the arts and celebrates life, and a community of engaged and caring citizens.

This text was then presented together with the object in a cabinet of curiosities that at the same time evoked associations with a distribution centre. Evil Media Distribution Centre is a response to the book Evil Media (2012) by Matthew Fuller and Andrew Goffey. In that book the authors argue for a broader notion of media and a deeper, more complex understanding of how these grey media influence the way we behave, think and perceive.
