Make This Magazine is pleased to announce the new theme for issue four:
Synesthesia. Does hearing sounds make you see colors? Does smelling
make you taste? Can the heat or cold alter your vision? How do our
sense affect each other? In this issue, we will be exploring sensory
experiences and the replacement of one sense for another.
For this issue of MTM, we will also be venturing into new territory in
its production. Each issue will be a limited edition, handmade,
complete sensory experience for the reader as well as the artists.
With this in mind, we will be accepting dimensional media as well as
audio and animation. Specific forms of media are indicated in the
assignments when applicable.
You will find the visual accompaniment to the invitation for Issue 4
attached to this e-mail; submission guidelines appear below. So… here
they are: the assignments for MTM4:
1.) Create a video or flash animation of what you would eat for dessert.
2.) Create a soundscape of a sunburn. (mp3 format).
3.) Design a sixth sense.
4.) Using only a blue or black pen, draw the color green.
5.) Draw a picture while someone you care about touches your skin.
6.) Visually create the noise of gunfire.
7.) Create how swimming feels.
8.) Invent a dish that tastes blue. Send us the recipe.
9.) What does the weather taste like? (Be as specific as possible --
date, time, season, etc.)
10.) Write a math equation for the smell of death.
We look forward to hearing from you soon.
