    Thanks to 277 generous backers for our Interfictions Indiegogo Campaign, we raised $10,318 by the time our campaign ended at midnight, July 14th, 2014.  When we launched on June 3rd, we were staggered to find donations doubling almost daily, until after about 3 weeks we had reached our original target goal of $8,500, and were able to move on to our Stretch Goal of $10,000.

    Which means we not only get to publish Interfictions Online for another year, but we can pay our contributors at higher rates now, rates more in line with the effort and talent that innovation requires. Thank you, each and every one of the 277 generous donors who stepped forward to say that interstitial art is valued and valuable. The number of people is as important as the number of dollars raised. We are awed by your generosity.

    INTERFICTIONS issue #3 is up online!

    The editors of Interfictions Online are happy to announce the birth of the journal’s latest issue, on May 22, 2014!

    The Spring 2014 issue’s non-fiction offerings include Mark Craddock’s poignant collage in Aerial Acrobatics and Gender Reassignment Surgery – A How-To Guide, while Inda Lauryn’s Parallels and Transitions splices analysis of contemporary female vocalists into a graduate school memoir. Isabel Yap’s Life Is Not a Shoujo Manga speaks for itself. And in an interview with Jeff VanderMeer and Jeremy Zerfoss, the two creators discuss their illustrated guide to writing, Wonderbook.

    The fiction offerings remix tropes from ghosts to automata, with new work by Richard Butner, Su-Yee Lin, Kat Howard, Tade Thompson and S. Craig Renfroe Jr.

    Several of the poems in this issue reimagine older narratives: Sridala Swami’s AI Winter draws on the Mahabharata, Sonya Taaffe’s Double Business on Hamlet, and Mary Alexandra Agner’s Hypothesis Between Your Ribs on the brief life of Charles Darwin’s daughter.

  • Lin Esser’s Unconventional Tableaux: March 3rd at 5pm
    by Felice | February 29th, 2012 |

    This coming Saturday, the AFA Gallery in SoHo New York is hosting artist Lin Esser for the opening of his new collection of delightfully skeletal and wryly titled tableaux!

    These whimsical, macabre works evoke the eccentric subjects of English symbolism, sinister figures of the renaissance, the anthropomorphic tableaux of Victorian naturalism and the Dia de los Muertos style of South America. Come drift among these eerie creations and realize the “ever-evolving narrative that is revealed as one spends more time with each environment.”

    Colorado-born artist Lin Esser has been fascinated with illustration ever since watching his father, a mechanical engineer, craft intricate exploded drawings and cross sections of elaborate multi-cogged machinery. Like many interstitial artists, he has worked across disciplines as a double bass player, a Broadway sound designer, a film composer, a magazine illustrator, and a cartoonist. He was the Director of Sound and Music of the Actors Studio under Paul Newman, and his tableaux are featured in Dave Davidson’s short film Contacting the Living.

    This is a fascinating, highly-recommended exhibit which you can preview here. Don’t miss it: the full collection will only be on view for three weeks. Please note that RSVPs are necessary for the March 3rd event!
