a dedicated space for curiosity

Impermissible Occlusion > BPR #27

In About All Publications, About Word Works on 04/27/2011 at 00:50

On a cold spring day of clouds and rain, sun takes the form of a new publication–
a poetic collaboration with Floridian author and artist Steve Wing:
.
Impermissible Occlusion
BluePrintReview #27:  The Synergetic Transformations Issue

.
Instead of offering copious details about
our collaborative process, I’ll give just a hint:

East Coast Yoga, USA

West Coast Hot Springs, Canada

Here are the editor’s recollections on why she published ‘process notes’ in this issue:

Curiosity. It’s the first time that a whole issue of BluePrintReview is focusing on collaborations, and also is open re: format. It’s in some ways the counterpart to the usual issues. I just looked for the original call:

“The next issue of BluePrintReview is dedicated to collaborative works and has different guidelines: usually, the text + image on each page is coming from different submissions. For this issue, they come from one submission – with the submission itself coming from more than 1 person: please submit collaborative works that are combinations of text+image, and if you want, add a note on the process.”

 The issue itself was partly inspired by the collaborations in the previous issues (listed at the bottom of the “Re: Synergy” page ) With each of those, I wondered how it had come together. What had been the starting point – an image? A line? How had it all come together?” So I added the invite to send notes.

The entire issue is filled with synergy: collaborative words and images from a global cast of creators. In each case, process notes are included alongside the publication. Click on the names of individual contributors for their work(s) in collaboration:
