ART Issue 20
In Almost Real Things Issue 20 we asked creators “What is your art made of?”
This issue, our art, is a combination of paper, ink, ideas, writing, editing, collaboration. Those are obvious.
Peel back a layer and the process is filled with brainstorming, experimentation, compromise, failure, deadlines, no sleep.
We look at it again and I see community, memories, dreams, chance, hope, future.
The surface level doesn’t always reveal the true work of bringing your creative endeavor to life. It’s much more than the materials, appearance and perception.
For our 20th issue, we wanted to highlight all of the components that go into being a creator. We asked artists to share combo lists of what makes up their art. Musicians shared stories to compare their past and present. Community members and collectives delved into the complicated relationship between art and business.
