How2 New Issue

I have just uploaded the new issue of How2, and it's a massive, huge, varied and beautiful issue.

I feel I should plug the London section, being as it is coordinated by my supervisor, Redell Olsen, and in particular Frances Kruk and Lydia White, whose work features in this section and whom I taught last year for a short time. Not that my teaching is in any way reflected in the works presented here, which explore respectively (to my eye) a dirty concrete exploration of text through Xerox and degradation, and the combination of musical score, textual score and the tensions / agreements therein. Amazing stuff, and a great issue overall. This is saying something, since it is very easy to lose interest in the content of a web site you are producing, due to its repeated changes and repeated repetitional tautological cyclical repetition. Despite this, I'm still exctied to sit back with beer in hand and actually browse the issue intently.

Give it a whirl. Here's the proper launch info:
