THE TIME BEFORE BY PETER VAN ALPHEN

THE TIME BEFORE BY PETER VAN ALPHEN

There is nothing like the sweet, latent promise of good times; the tickle of butterflies in your stomach, the extravagant ideas about where the evening will take you, or with whom.

INIMITABLE ROADHOUSE BLUES BY JAKE TERREY

INIMITABLE ROADHOUSE BLUES BY JAKE TERREY

Jake's account of his trip across North and Central America was always going to be a visual endeavour, for the first (published) time he's employed words as a means of articulating his experience. If you are brave (and patient) enough to embark on its reading, you’ll be rewarded with the realisation that sometimes powerful pictures speak even louder when accompanied by a few (10) thousand words.

SHE’S LIKE THE WIND BY DIVYA BALA AND LEVON BAIRD

SHE’S LIKE THE WIND BY DIVYA BALA AND LEVON BAIRD

Once, summer meant endless feverish days bookended by the briefest winks of velvet night; a humming cicada song over a metronomic percussion of ice cubes against sweating glass; salt waves that washed overhead like a pulse and the echo of heat from every side and from below.

IN HONOUR OF UNCELEBRATED LAST TIMES BY LAUREN BRUMLEY

IN HONOUR OF UNCELEBRATED LAST TIMES BY LAUREN BRUMLEY

When habits vary or trends fade, we’re not always aware of the change. Tastes may shift, but there is still a finality to them. We just may not notice the transition.

‘First Impressions’ by Melanie Mahony

‘First Impressions’ by Melanie Mahony

In the age of Instagram, it’s more than likely anyone new you meet has either already seen your online persona, or will look you up afterwards. 

Playing With Fire by Luke Shadbolt & Eli Murphy

Playing With Fire by Luke Shadbolt & Eli Murphy

All things begin, end and begin again in fire. From the earliest dawning of humankind’s consciousness, fire has represented the most powerful and unrelenting source of change known to us.

Remember This Feeling by Divya Bala

Remember This Feeling by Divya Bala

Possession is symbiotic, the things we have, have us. There’s an intimacy that binds, that is forged as they live with you, against your skin.

The Space Between Us (I hope you swipe what you’re looking for) by Noelle Faulkner

The Space Between Us (I hope you swipe what you’re looking for) by Noelle Faulkner

If love is a blanket of darkness that, despite dilated pupils, constricts our sight into a single-track tunnel, floods our brains with stress hormones and turns us into a dizzy mess of preoccupation and restlessness; then intimacy is the light switch.

The Language of Love by Matilda Dods

The Language of Love by Matilda Dods

There is a sweet and sticky awkwardness of falling in love that never truly leaves, even after the days of high school and asking your parents’ permission to go out with your boyfriend. Like an ice cream melting down your fingers, sugary trails to be licked off hands and wrists, leaving behind a sticky residue.

Limits of Control: Memo from the Deep End by Noelle Faulkner

Limits of Control: Memo from the Deep End

How do you know you’re alive? Heartbeats? Breath? Pain? Love? Fear? Moments? Evidence left on your flesh? Risk? G-force? Caffeine? Existential dread?

Alive

Alive

Edition N°2 ponders the vast notion of being ALIVE.
What it means to be ALIVE seems to be just as elusive as the meaning of life itself.

In This Day and Age by Tatiana Farley

In This Day and Age by Tatiana Farley

Punk rock prodigy Patti Smith astutely observed, “Who can know the heart of youth but youth itself.”

Breath Becomes Air by Bree McDonald

Breath Becomes Air by Bree McDonald

We are, as Australians, intrepid by nature. Our location fuels our wanderlust, forcing our creative industries to be bold, to be heard. Our cultural isolation lending innovation and leading to world-class equivalence.

Swaying in the Winds: Rethinking Influence by Noelle Faulkner

Swaying in the Winds: Rethinking Influence by Noelle Faulkner

Technology has changed the meaning of influence. Where it was once the verb of inspiration, the burst of wind that propels one into changing course, the strike of a match starting a fire otherwise un-tindered; influence is now a currency.
