issue 0 - Under Pressure
is about the heat of coexistence
and pressure as a changing force
Perceived pressures are rarely clear in origin, most commonly they appear within a modality of push/pull, manifesting as a spectrum of bodily interpretative states. Pressures actualized through environmental crisis, spheres of technological life, and new work requirements are not only affecting our ’natural’ habitats and enacting a culture of constant performance — but are shifting access and enabling the distortion of ideas and actions in milieus of commonality. In a climate characterized by the introduction of linear historiography and infinite resources, this mode of pressurized productivity seems to have reaching its ecological, human, and physical limits. The limits of conditional space in which life can emerge are shaped by the pressurization of differentiated perception.
