THE 22 FUNDRAISER: VOL 2/II, SIGN AND SYMBOL.

THE 22 MAGAZINE: VOL 2/II, SIGN & SYMBOL: THE FUNDRAISER.

We know. You wait for this moment all year. Perhaps with bated breath. Likely with tingling anticipation. Well, tingle no longer my friends. THE 22 FUNDRAISER has officially begun.

There are some amazing (and expensive) things coming up for The 22, including the rather mad attempt at publishing THE 22 REVIEW, our first print incarnation of The 22 Magazine: Vol I and II. Encompassing a year’s work of work, this volume is testament to the first year of the 22 and the contributor’s (both in the magazine and on the web) that have made it possible.

So HOW do you get a copy? Well, one way to ensure you do it to GIVE US MONEY. There are a plethora of things we’ll reward you with for donating (besides our undying devotion) and you’ll also help stroke our fundraising egos so in the future we can do bigger and better things.

We truly thank you for whatever you can give.

DONATE NOW! OUR THANKS FOREVER.

THE 22 VOL: 1 ONLINE NOW!

Well folks, it’s finally here. The first issue of The 22 in all it’s beautiful, gritty, hard wonness and I for one am glad to see it foisted upon the world. For the moment it is available to view on ISSUU and this evening I’ll have everything embedded so the tentacles of publication stretch far and wide. There are some amazing artists in here, and their words and pictures are now all yours. Over the next couple of months I’ll be shining a spotlight on each of these artists and telling you the story of why the were chosen to be one of the 22.(Look for a special post tomorrow morning as well, introducing you to the 22.)

Lots of very cool things coming up in the following months as well, including video interviews and some really terrific events involving the contributors.

Thanks again to all the folks that made this possible. We couldn’t have done it without you…and you….and definitely you.

 

ANDREW BINKLEY: Crossings

CROSSINGS
BY ANDREW BINKLEY

Throughout Andrew Binkley’s work as an artist, he has utilized a variety of media and approaches to uncover and explore our notions of time and patterns of human behavior.  In ‘Crossings’, Binkley brings into play the time-based media of photography and video to observe the seen and unseen traces between people on the streets below.

Through the use of an overhead perspective and layering multiple photographs and video of people passing by on their daily routines, ‘Crossings’ works with the themes of intersecting or sharing paths, and integrating or transforming relationships, as well as the unknown or transient connections between people through time.
