Presence - Issue #1 (In The Mist) Magazine
Label: Yellow Electric
Edition of 650.
There is extra haze in the air these days, much more that we are all walking through together. Presence began as an idea for a mellow zine and a way to connect w people I was missing. It became a resonant wide-angle portrait of some distinct creative minds, some real intimacies shared; eavesdropping on a conversation with friends, the notes from a performance rather than a photo of the performance/performer themselves.
The resulting assembly is meaningful, hilarious, dark, at times surprising. Many contributed something different than what they're known for, while some shared a honed craft. An interview done by a musician, a story written by a filmmaker, etc. It's a mixed bag.
In The Mist is a hand-stamped, full color, nearly 50 pp, 10" x 13" arts/music publication; comes in a poly bag with risograph variable edition insert including a link to a mix by Coby Sey, a hand-made bookmark, and custom-made sticker.
