ARTIST STATEMENT: The 22 is an online arts and literature digital magazine that seeks to explore connections and intersections between the works of artists, musicians and writers. In some portions of The 22 the structure is presented as a diptych, allowing the viewer to actively participate in the task of opening the hinge that links conversation between the two pieces.
The magazine’s mission is to publish new art and writing as integrated structures that play off each other and enhance the whole. Some issues address a special theme to which the 22 contributors respond. Each issue culminates in series of salon style events showcasing the contributors work. As an online digital magazine, The 22 will have the advantage of engaging viewers interactively within the realms of fine art, music, animation, illustration, video, installation, performance and web art.
