ASPECT is looking for works for our next issue, title "Joie de
Vivre". Taking a pause from the serious and brooding content of
the last 4 issues, we are looking for works with a lighter
approach to their content.
ASPECT requests submissions must include a proposed artwork
documented on video and a proposed audio commentary by someone
other than the artist.
Please forward the following open call to any intersted parties.
