Description

Edited by Francesco Pedraglio and Gavin Everall.

In a mesmerizing story from the Time Machine series, a man and a woman begin the project of building an isolated, sustainable farm in the north of Canada, cut off from civilization. Paris-based author/artist Alex Cecchetti places the protagonists in a non-linear narrative, driving through the tawdry present, only to realize a future set deeply in the past. Haunted by the specters of dead rabbits and a prophetic bear, the couple’s utopian dream is delivered in a rapid, dense stream of language, as if the text itself wants to return to the pace of present. Editor Francesco Pedraglio chooses works from open submission, allowing us to consciously experiment with all our imaginable histories and expected futures.
