38.1 PHASE SHIFT out now


As we move into the second half of 2020, we are considering anew how and why we do just about everything. Much is being phased out: old ways of thinking, old ways of communicating, and old ways of connecting are being sloughed off as we find new ways to relate to one another in this new world. Issue 38.1, PHASE SHIFT, is a document of this change, produced in a moment of massive transition. Our first hybrid digital/print issue, 38.1 was created in the spirit of transformation: carrying forward that which serves us, and leaving behind that which does not.
