Issue 157


Kink gives us an opportunity to question the limits of convention as they meet with hierarchical systems. Taking kink as a shapeshifter—a conscious negotiation of desire and relations based on principles like consent—this issue embraces queerness, disobedience, disruption, and complex embodiment. Through artistic explorations of BDSM, impact play, subspace, fan fiction, eroticized debt, Indigenous-settler relations, and more, contributors dive into the fleshy and political consequences of desire as sites to reinvent our bonds to one another.

"Logo was my introduction to the potential of creating a symbolic language all my own, imbued with my values and ways of knowing. Rather than asking me to internalize the functions of the computer as a machine, it was code that I could manipulate and recombine into systems that express my inner thoughts, desires, joys, and sorrows."
Matt Nish-Lapidus, in Joyful, Poetic Microworlds
