ART PAPERS 38.05 - Sept/Oct 2014
This fall at ART PAPERS, we find ourselves to be exploring inner experience and interconnectivity. There is an unusual density of interviews and diaristic content in the pages that follow, these personal formats being particularly suited to the intimacy of the subject matter.Oblivious to boundaries, new or alternative means of communication--including zines and graphic novels, antifunctional web sites, eblast, discursive performance and even interpretative readings of cosmic phenomena--are intuitive but effective.--Victoria Camblin, excerpt, Letter from the Editor
