This issue accompanies a time of profound ecological, social, and technological transition. The sculptures of Ser Serpas, cover story for this issue, are emblematic of such “transient moments,” as Ingrid Luquet-Gad notes. These works are the result of a process in which language literally intersects residue — materials that for society have become objects of waste, of abandonment.
In some sense the world’s ecosystem is gradually losing its boundaries, entering into a new era of increasingly unstable subjectivity, as is particularly evident in Korakrit Arunanondchai’s vision of the world as Stefanie Hessler points out.
