Parallel Universe

Cover of Parallel Universe
Issue 36:4, December 2016

This edition explores the work of artists responding to sci-fi, super- and speculative fictions. As fans, creators and collaborators, stepping over the threshold into screen life, model worlds and virtual realities, artists create their own parallel universe. Playful, interrogative, predictive and relational, the practices profiled across these pages variously employ old and new media to propose working worlds as imagined and real-world outcomes.
