mat.zine #10 call for submissions

Posted in Announcements, Architecture, Writing, Zine by ryanmcloughlin on July 14, 2011

It’s that time again!! Calling all thinkers, do’ers and creatives from all fields!

Following on from the success of Copy + Paste, mat.zine # 09 .  I am happy to throw a new topic into the fray.

BRICK

This forth coming Mat.zine Issue # 10 is to be a collection of dialogues between Brick and I. Where brick is the mundane physicality of our environment and I, the complex homosapien.

The premise for this edition comes from my personal experience in Mumbai.  Here, it seems, the artist, the architects, the anthropologists, the urban thinkers and the poets have gone missing. This city is built on pure necessity, and a little greed. To me this metropolis of 20 Million has been pared down to its urban essentials.  But through essential necessity, the city is beautiful, there is art and there is architecture. There is culture and and there is poetry, it may not be formalized and it may not be glamorous but it exists in abundance.

My challenge for you is to explorer the same poetry and beauty in the essential building blocks of your environment, however hidden they may be.

Focus should be around; the everyday, the tangible and ultimately the prosaic reality of our physical environment.

As with all mat.zines we encourage freedom of style, medium and weight for submission.

Final submission: Thursday 1 September 2011

Editor: Ryan McLoughlin

submissions by email should be sent to: submissions.matzine@gmail.com
