Indeed, all around us, we see this quality of in-betweenness: we see state changes in governments, in physical matter, in information. We talk in the light of the projector—a beam that transmutes private creative practice into a state of physical public display. “Matter and meaning are not separate elements” (Barad). Together, we work in and around changing meaning and matter. What is lingering inside the state change? What occurs at the boundary of liminality? Where is the potential for sublimation? What visions for new futures, what historicized pasts, or what critiques of the now can we see from the spaces in between, in media res?
Art is research. We invite submissions to the Living Room Light Exchange’s Publication Two with the theme of State Change. To submit work, write us a short pitch with a description of what you’d like to contribute and why you want it in this publication. Feel free to include any visuals that would be helpful, if your contribution is mainly visual, or links to previously published work, if you think we’d like to read it. Submission pitches are due on 20 January, 2017
