EDITOR’S NOTE



Begins & Ends
As mentioned above, we decided not to begin numbering the stories in this issue with #1. Instead we did away with new beginings in order to allow each story to be identified with a unique number -it brings a certain feeling of continuum that we like. When will the numbered stories end? We'll figure that out later...

For Amy Sarkisian, her latest work begins with the end. Using DIY forensic methods, Amy fleshes out faces from toy skulls to demonstrate how the they might have looked. Judging from her results, she might've been one of the few to assume that the hole in the forehead of a mammoth's skull was socket for it's third eye. Is her morbid fascination with these recreations a type of self confirmation of what's really at the end?

In between birth and death there are a multitude of other beginnings and endings like when boyhood ends and manhood begins. For Fantasy's Core, a Manband from Japan, the idea of being boys will always live inside of them as they maintain the energy and naïveté of youth in all thier perfromances.

In The Art Happens Here Mark River and Tim Whidden like to blur the area where art begins and ends. With their work you're not sure where your part as a viewer ends and their performance work begins. They discovered, while making automations of 60's art, how they can move more of the artist work to the laps of their viewers using computer technology. Very tricky tech I thought.

I can go on pointing out all the beginnings and ends in this issue but it must come to an end eventually. Let's do that here.

COVER PHOTO



By artist Scarlett Hooft Graafland, another end in itself. More of Scarlett's projects can be found in her website.

"[...] to lay on top of them gives you
an uneasy feeling, to be locked outside.
The nakedness makes it more vulnerable."
