INCITE #3: "New Ages"

It should be news to absolutely no-one that quality publications on experimental film are few and far between, so when one of the most valuable currently around, INCITE!, needs some help, it's definitely worth getting behind.  See below for details on the forthcoming issue and links to the Kickstarter campaign currently underway...


"New Ages" will feature over 160 pages of writing, art work, interviews, scholarly articles, more than 20 full color images, and contributions by 25 artists, filmmakers, writers, curators, and scholars from across the U.S. and Canada.  We recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for the printing of the issue, which ends in early November.

INCITE #3 aims at addressing the generational shifts and divides in today’s experimental film, video, and new media spheres, utilizing the 2010 International Experimental Media Congress as an opportunity for reflection. In addition to compiling a dossier of idiosyncratic reflections on the Congress, this issue also focuses on the renewed fascination with "New Age" spirituality, philosophy and aesthetics among contemporary media artists.  You can view the Table of Contents for Issue #3 and read the Congress Dossier online.

Some highlights of this issue include Walter Forsberg's wide-ranging essay about the computer animation (and accidental 3D) pioneer Lillian Schwartz, Thomas Beard's astute analysis of Shana Moulton's Whispering Pines video serial, a Jacob Ciocci and Jesse McLean "G-Chat," Marisa Olson on Transcendentalism, and Brian L. Frye's citation study of The New York Times, which measures the relative importance of avant-garde filmmakers.
