From the Editors

“Escapism: the tendency to seek distraction and relief from unpleasant realities, especially by seeking entertainment or engaging in fantasy.”

As editors and photographers, we become fatigued by images that demand we feel a certain way, seek an obscured message, or focus intensely— our weary eyes find respite in off-white, lightly textured plaster walls.

The images in this issue are most easily described as fun. As a viewer, we are not asked to believe anything. We are free to unload our own thoughts or fantasies into these spaces. We take away what we want, if we want. That’s not to say that these images were created devoid of all meaning. Inside, Joel Kuennen presents insightful connections to the Dada movement.

Is it wrong to simply enjoy the surface? Does ignorance provide true relief?
