Crimson Feet, the bi-monthly journal of evolutionary art and writing is publishing its third volume in May'04. This note presents a brief outline of the pervading theme, structure, scope and a call for new work.
Volume 3 - Theme:
*Poof* - the pyramid's gone and so is the mythical underground
The pyramid as a hierarchy is a classical symbol of the burden the underdog carries on his shoulder. The burden of the need to rise up the hierarchy, the burden of the need to survive, the burden of living with the conscious presence of accomplished and 'risen'. But the pyramid can also be equity, a disintegrated pyramid is a maze, an integrated pyramid is a multi-dimension.
The pyramid as a hierarchy is a product of the universal lack of conviction.
Essays, art, poetry, fiction looking at the pyramid structurally. A study of the structure of the pyramid as well as its deformations and mutations can reveal some interesting things about hierarchies, the underground and the *Poof* effect. The *Poof* effect has been felt by numerous individuals and organizations at different points in their life. It suddenly makes you feel
liberated and free to do anything, to feel anything, even 'happiness'; some instances of the *Poof* would be interesting. Strains of humour or sarcasm will fit in well. Interpretation can be with any foci. Specifically work which draws similarities and 'cross-solutions' across different genres and fields e.g. open-source, the software industry and the music industry is a ready example.
