Lifted Brow #44, the: Digital Intimacies
(1000 items available)
This issue of the Lifted Brow examines the intricate and complicated ways that writing and art play with technology, and the way technology can play us in return. In the soft, pixelated space between the human and its hardware, what happens? From these starting points, DIGITAL INTIMACIES begins to document some of the myriad ways that we know each other online – how our connectivity affects our bodies, politics, art, lives and loves.Issue 44 of The Lifted Brow, the DIGITAL INTIMACIES issue, is a special themed edition, one we have been dreaming about, living with, and collaborating on for a very long time. With cover art straight from our cyber fantasies by the incredible Kate Geck, DIGITAL INTIMACIES includes original essays, fiction, translations, commentary, criticism, poetry, and as always so many pages of comics and illustrated work, all narrowing in on the intersections between people and our technologies. This issue delves deeply, including into: creative video games criticism; how to stop complying with capitalism on your phone; the estrangement and excitement of online relationships; revolutions planned on social media platforms; the disappointment of tech utopianism; and the joy, or the terror, of finding yourself outside of reception range.
