August Update

We are so excited for the upcoming launch of Issue One. It’s been incredible to see this first issue come together, how each piece grows out of and tilts toward or away from the previous piece at different angles.

In addition to all our excitement here at our home base, we also want to share with you some of the amazing projects our Issue One contributors have been working on. 

Here are just a few of the exciting things our tele- contributors have been up to lately:



Celeste Byers

To see more about Celeste and her work, follow her on Instagram and go to her website


You can also check out this recent short film by Evan Schell, in which Celeste discusses her process for creating a mural and shares some of her art. 

Celeste designed a bus wrap for Climate Nexus' Freedom to Breathe tour, and it is absolutely beautiful! Celeste says of the project: 

I designed my first ever bus wrap for Climate Nexus' Freedom to Breathe tour, a tour traveling across the US highlighting stories of injustice, resistance, and hope. The tour is about how climate justice is social justice.

If you don't know what either of those things are, social justice is justice (fairness) in terms of the distribution of wealth, opportunities, and privileges within a society. Climate justice is a term used for framing global warming as an ethical and political issue, rather than one that is purely environmental or physical in nature. A fundamental proposition of climate justice is that those who are least responsible for climate change suffer its gravest consequences.

I'll be flying to Louisiana tomorrow to meet the bus at its next stop where we will be visiting some communities being affected by climate change so stay tuned!

Clayton McCracken

Clayton directed the music video for Blonde Mom's "Myopic Thread."

Myopic Thread guides its viewers on a microbiological journey of the creative process--a process which teeters between chance and careful adjustments.
The video was hand-made with vintage video hardware, combining animation with live action footage, 3D modeling, and analogue video synthesis.

To get a look at Clayton's process for video synthesis using live, audio-reactive improvisations, check out his Adult Swim live session. 

Mia Pinheiro

In addition to holding multiple workshops and exchanges in Vermont, Western Mass, and Mexico City, Mia will be staging Lifeboat Opera, "an immersive survival installation/fantasy for the carnal longevity of animalus hominum," along with Lydia Kern, at AS220 in Providence, RI, September 28th - 30th. 

We divine a forecast + methods of preparedness for the the increased affection of these sensuous beasts, YOU on planet EARTH.
Miniscule and mammoth catastrophes as catalyst for mutation of perception and social relation.
