The third issue of INCITE! Journal of Experimental Media, titled "New Ages" aims at addressing the generational shifts and divides in today’s experimental film, video, and new media spheres, utilizing the 2010 International Experimental Media Congress as an opportunity for reflection. In addition to compiling a dossier of idiosyncratic reflections on the Congress, this issue also focuses on the renewed fascination with "New Age" spirituality, philosophy and aesthetics among contemporary media artists. Some highlights of this issue include Walter Forsberg's wide-ranging essay about the computer animation (and accidental 3D) pioneer Lillian Schwartz, Thomas Beard's astute analysis of Shana Moulton's "Whispering Pines" video serial, a Jacob Ciocci and Jesse McLean "G-Chat," Jaimz Asmundson on his new film, "The Magus", Marisa Olson on Transcendentalism, and Brian L. Frye's citation study of "The New York Times", which measures the relative importance of avant-garde filmmakers.
To cover publication costs, INCITE! has launched a Kickstarter campaign. You can help release this great publication with a small donation and even get past issues of INCITE!, experimental film DVDs or a silkscreened print of George Kuchar's portrait by Leslie Supnet in return.
