The Hum of Modern Civilization in Action
Suggested casually one day by friend and collaborator Paul Neff, the theme for this issue was adopted to allude to our growing awareness that we were part of a community that used machines, as opposed to tools, to make art (a machine being thought of as a complex tool). The relationship to art and the machine, and of art’s ever shifting role in culture, had already become one of the facets of the modern world we were exploring in this publication.
In any event, the current title displays Arturo Giuseppe Fallico’s striking and idiosyncratic graphics for the cover. In addition to many names that will be familiar to followers of this project, a number of artists from South America are included; by name, Paulo Bruscky (Brazil), and Clemente Padín and Ruben M. Tani (Uruguay).
