Call for contributions for Static Issue 05-Metamorphosis
Nec manet sui similis res: omnia migrant, omnia commutat natura et vertere cogit
(Lucretius, De Rerum Natura, V. 828)
The fifth issue of Static invites critical and creative contributions on the theme of Metamorphosis.
The mutability of things is a theme that has gripped people from the ancient world to the modern. This issue of Static will focus closely on the changing forms in which change of form is thought about and represented in literature, myth, and arts. Metamorphosis is the vehicle by which different cultures think concretely about the relations between form and time, fusion and undoing, the singular and the multiple, the absolute and the intermediary. Among other things, metamorphosis refers to the transformations of the body effected in body practices, cosmetic, ritual and sexual.
We invite all kinds of submissions but we particularly welcome contributions in non-textual media, be it photographic images, art projects, animation, short film, or other media.
We would like to ask you to contact the editorial team at firstname.lastname@example.org in the first instance to discuss the format and other technical details before you submit your work.
The deadline for submissions is April 15, 2007.
Prof. Colin MacCabe, Prof. Steven Connor, Irini Marinaki, Martine Rouleau, Konstantinos Stefanis, Vlad Strukov
