The Fear Project (Cover image by Marina Fridman) aims to transform our collective fears into a common ground through which we can connect and relate to one another. The in-progress art installation will combine drawings, community participation, sculpture, sound, and written text.
Shown here are eye drawings of recent participants of the project, who shared whispered fears that will become the audio component of the installation.
Fridman hopes to create an environment that allows us to recognize ourselves in another person, and to feel less alone in experiencing our fears. To learn more about the project and to participate, please visit www.MarinaFridman.com
The prose and poetry in this issue helped out editorial team find beauty and peace both through the pandemic and through Hurricane Ida. We hope you love them as deeply as we do.–Editor, Lindsay Sproul
