Issue 18 ACTIVE ROT

Published from April 18, 2013 to July 17, 2013.
Editor: Alexandar Provan

The gradual loss of integrity plays out in various aesthetic milieus: A TV pilot corrupts true art, an authorless novel seeks to enter the marketplace, the degradation of the environment is countered by a scheme for a land-art-inspired green economy, Charlie Sheen’s salacity is looped. This issue recognizes the continuous phenomenal change that thwarts our best-laid plans and programs, but admits that total overhaul is rarely feasible. Instead, it focuses on evolutionary processes and the joys of departure from any original design, the likelihood that each thing is the same thing in a deceptive form, scenes from the decline of commercial viability, the work of waiting.
