Into the Midst: An out-of-series Inflexions Issue

Please visit Inflexions to see our new journal issue . This issue consists participant responses to ‘Into the Midst‘, a SenseLab event that occurred in October of 2012. Into the Midst was a five-day collaborative research-creation workshop in and around the SATosphere, the Society for Art and Technology’s interactive immersive projection environment (aka ‘The Dome’). This issue is the first experiment in our new ‘out of series’ journal issues.

About Inflexions

> Go to Journal Website > View Issue Summaries Inflexions is an open-acess journal for research-creation sponsored by the Sense Lab. It publishes articles, short texts of various genres including poetry and ficto-theory, images, sound, and other multimedia content. We invite writing and/or other forms of expression actively exploring such issues as: (inter/trans/non) disciplinarity; the emergence of new modes of collaboration; micropolitics and the life and death of institutions; creativity, subjectivity and collectivity in cultural production; the ethics of aesthetics; the aesthetic as ethics. The goal is to promote experimental practices combining research and creation in such a way as to foster symbiotic links between philosophical inquiry, technological innovation, artistic production, and social and political engagement. Of continuing concern will be how these efforts may renew and recast relations between the concrete and the abstract, perception and conception, the body and technology. We hope the journal will become a tool for thinkers, builders, artists, informal groupings, and institutions to develop a mutually sustaining and enriching dialogue around these issues. We encourage inter/trans/non disciplinary work, both individual and collaborative, that is not content to critique or negate existing models but affirms the value of creation in the research process. We also encourage authors to embrace the technical possibilities of the Web, and to test the limits of of academic writing, by considering integrating their writing with other forms of expression. INFLEXIONS ISSUES are built around special-edited thematic clusters and invited contributions. Each is edited by one or several members of the editorial collective or by invited external editors working in consultation with the editorial collective. Unsolicited contributions are also welcome,...
