Visual Behaviors/Digital Productions
- ------------------------------------
THE LITTLE MAGAZINE VOL. 21B, an extension of the VOL 21
CD-Rom project, is now accepting work suitable for
electronic publication on the WWW. We are looking partic-
ularly for writing: poetry.fiction.theory.criticism.multi-
genre work, visual and sound art conceived as multimedia:
visual.verbal.aural.textual.hypertextual collaborations.
We invite you to exercise the possibilities in ways we
haven't thought of (and we lay awake at night pondering
these things). The limits (as always) are only those which
the technology places on the imagination and vice versa.
The proposed theme of the upcoming issue is VISUAL BEHAVIORS.
Please feel free to stretch and manipulate this them to
suit your purposes. Send work from NOW until February '96.
Sooner is better.
