AND A MIX by BRADFORD COX





Issue 17 is a reflection on human perspectives of our world in the 21st century — understood by scientists and commentators as a new geological era, the Anthropocene. It looks at contemporary conceptions of our planet in space, patterns of human migration and displacement, issues of Earth and environment, the sophisticated infrastructure of global supply chains, revisionist dystopias and mythmaking and the resurgence of Indigenous intelligence and activism.

PRIVATE

ISSUE SIXTEEN    SPRING SUMMER 2016


Issue 16 looks at the theme Private from a number of angles including intimacy and sex, public versus private, secrets and surveillance, and the pervasive influence of the internet in our lives today. We discuss the relationship between activism and art, architecture as catharsis, radical intimacy in Japanese photography, other people’s underwear, internet pop-up girls and corporate personality. Interviews and essays investigate the golden age of pre-internet pornography, ways to wear a mask, the human nature of machines, sending photos into space for near-eternity, Bernie Maddoff’s not-so-private library and 21st century Jim Crow.

NO SEASONS

ISSUE TEN    SPRING SUMMER 2012


The theme for our 10th edition is 'No Seasons' — taking a look at the changing seasons; or the unnerving lack of them. A slightly apocalyptic look at the weather and the world in general, related to the idea of merging seasons represented through weather, climate change, age, genre, style and culture. Throughout this issue we also explore the changing landscape of our environmental, political, social and economic climate. The role that globalisation, the mass market and our obsession with ‘here and now’ have played, and what effect the disintegration of these defined ‘seasons’ is having on society and the planet.
