ISSUE ZERO: INTRODUCTION

Research screenshot, by¬†Sedimenta‘s editor

Sedimenta came to me as a part of another word broken between two lines, in a paragraph outlining a hypothesis, between definitions, between human and geologic histories.

 

Sedimenta issue 0 is proof of concept for a unique, digital bi-annual journal that houses two essays, three book and two exhibition reviews, a translated essay, and two interviews. The analytical essays, separately, engage with individual artistic practices that observe and critically intervene within the shifting conditions of the Anthropocene. The book reviews, separately, discover new and exploratory voices in this discourse. The interviews, separately, highlight the voices of these agents. However, together the essays, reviews, and interviews are not segregated into categories; rather, each of these as case studies in different forms, flow through the circumstances under which colonialism, capitalist economics, and petrol-imperialism occupy twenty-first century artistic practices. In addressing these broad, contemporary conditions, I convene case studies that seek the borders of artistic practice at the moment where the geologic meets the human.
