A look at Timothy Morton's concept of "Hyperobjects"-- viscous, nonlocal, phased and interobjective "things"-- through the lens of multiple artist practices.

With contributions from Carol Padberg, Jessica Santone, Bethany Taylor, Sarah Knudtson, Liz Ensz, Timothy Morton, and more.
What does it mean to be culturally vibrant in the face of an escalating climate? How do we adapt to the continually evolving present? What changes, what moves? What is alive?

While many of our issues have featured work that is ecologically and environmentally engaged, in this issue, we will take a look at economic models in our cultural spheres. We’re particularly interested in new models & infrastructure, art work or performance staged in response to economy, and reflections on our current cultural state.
