    IAF INTERFICTIONS ONLINE INDIEGOGO CAMPAIGN ends above target goal

    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.

  • Telectroscope
    by Ellen | June 25th, 2008 |

    IAF Working Group member Deborah Atherton was the first to spot it:

    “I’m in New York City, and for anyone here or near here, there’s an amazing art installation that I would consider vibrantly interstitial – fantasy/science fiction/ sculpture/media/historical/just plain wacky and wonderful – called the Telektroscope going on in Brooklyn- and London–for the next two weeks. (Over now, sadly. – ed.) The artist’s concept is that you are looking across the sea through a series of mirrors in a trans-Atlantic tunnel. A good friend in London arranged an appointment for my family to wave at her and her husband through this Victorian looking giant telescope that is actually fiber optical – it’s hard to explain, but this is the website. I love the Victorian sensibility translated into contemporary video installation.
    If we had an Interstitial Gold Star, I would definitely nominate the artist. He seems like One of Us.”

    WG member Lisa Stock went and tried it out!

    Just got back from my visit to the Telectroscope here in NYC. I’ve posted all about it and a few pics here.

    As soon as I saw it I thought of the quote on the IAF site about interstitial art crossing borders and filling cracks between genres. Well, this scope bursts up from one of those cracks and crosses the Atlantic ocean to bring people together. So, a very intersitial idea!

    And makes me wonder what public art idea IAF could create one day…
    Just a little seed to plant…
