ART PAPERS 37.04 - July/Aug 2013
We decide to call the issue Suddenly, Last Summer after the title of the cover art by Jody Fausett - an emoji plot summary of the movie by the same name. Jody has painstakingly recreated each of these emoji from real life subjects to layer a material, tangible process onto a digital one. This desire to reinsert the physical, the body back in into the virtual is an emergent theme in our issue. --MALONE, excerpt, Letter from the Editors
