A Jungle Grows in all Spaces is a collage made up of thirty-three moving parts that Gracia and I made for our part in Pinknantucket's Materiality, Number 2: Time. In the lower left-hand corner of this current issue, our collaged work appears. Making this flip book about all returning to nature in time was a real treat. We hope to make a small iPhone film of our work moving, should time permit, later today.
You can purchase a copy of the second issue of Materiality as either hard copy or as pdf download through Pinknantucket Press.
The second issue of Materiality is all about TIME. It examines our relationship with time as it is observed and measured by our physical environment, our bodies and our material culture. Inside you'll find fiction, essay, image and verse about the stuff of time: clocks and watches, calendars, sundials, timetables, time capsules, death certificates, and many other things besides.
You'll read about how capitalism co-opted time through the invention of time clocks, the development of medieval books of hours, the rise of the squirrel people, Viking bone structures, the frozen remnants of Antarctic expeditions, and crack patterns in paintings. A special edition zine by Mike Lynch is included in the back pocket. The TIME issue also features flip book illustrations by Gracia + Louise and Albertine Hamilton.
You can peruse Materiality, Number 1: Book too, and read, amongst other things, G's piece about sourcing books for collage.
Thanks for inviting us to be a part of this, Alice, and for all your hard work as well.
