Hey there buddy!


This publication is intended to be a bi-annual investigation of cultural fermentation through the lens of a new theme each issue. Cultural fermentation refers to moments of agitation and excitement that begin to form trends within our day-to-day lives. This magazine, therefore, advances a principled ambition: to draw on fermentation as both a theory and a practice as we journey across sub/human conditions and document scenes of in/animacy. The fermentation process we leverage is certainly not to preserve culture. Its aim, in an alchemical style, is to create something new and unfamiliar, even unpredictable.
