Issue 18

Issue 18 has a new expanded format. The 144 pages of writing and art embark on a search for ancestral meaning that takes us from a remote Philippine island to a cavern on the Caribbean coast, with stops in rural China, Sudan, Brazil, and California. The cover artist, Elina Bergmark Wiberg, sculpts elastic objects that engage with agrarian traditions and modern materials: “Still Life with Grapes” combines silicone with lentils.
