Flint Magazine / Expanded Interdisciplinary Arts

Project Description

Flint Magazine is an unbound multimedia journal modeled after Aspen Magazine, the highly influential art journal “in a box.” Like Aspen, each issue of Flint assembles a diverse collection of text, film, print, and sound, interweaving the tactile and the intangible in content and form.

Flint Magazine offers a poetic antonym of sorts:

Where Aspen is a tree – Flint is a rock.

Each issue of Flint Magazine aims to collect and disseminate writing, film, audio, and other documents with the themes and design determined by its editors. Bringing together works from artists and writers spanning the globe, this multimedia magazine in a box assembles a diverse collection of text, film, print, and sound, interweaving the tactile and the intangible in content and form.

  • research applicable grants for the publication
