recently i’ve been encountering the “problem” that is having a lot of creative energy and not knowing where to channel it. in general i do a lot of thinking and not a lot of producing, but since i finish the school year june 11 and have yet to find a summer job (um, if anyone in the san francisco bay area wants to a hire a shy 19 y/o design student with a resume that includes things like “art gallery intern” and “self-publishing graphic novelist” i am… available. i can wash dishes.) i thought i would start a project that i have been thinking about for the last couple of months.
space mag is a study in how the internet influences nonprofessional artists to create art, as well as the idea of “informal” art (that is, the idea of transient context-based art that isn’t created for exhibition). it is a generative magazine that works towards creating a dialog between different mediums and people, to be viewed as a web-based landscape of group thought process. it attempts to be, in that sense, a “living” work of art. issues are not time-constrained and are prompted initially by a quote/phrase (that is expected to be interpreted for contemporary art/living, not investigated from their original source) and continues to evolve as a stream of collective consciousness that is neither recyclable nor monumental.
