Art in motion is about kinesis—contentment with constant change, a resignation to the knowledge that the only constant quality of this universe is flux, or motion.
The stories span art about fantasy and the circus: a mind in flux; a protagonist of a photograph undergoing a gender transformation: a body in flux; a story about love across the continents: a heart in flux and a story on tempo of silence: time, itself in flux.
The pace of these four stories is varied: from high speed to barely discernable, art in motion spans video, photography, performance and other stories that involve the mind shifts and molecular movement.
Our summer issues are our re-printed Editor's Picks of the most intriguing stories written since the inception of The Fuschia Tree, with an ideal to revitalize, rejuvenate and realize.
The Fuschia Tree art zine is commerce free, and in an effort to remain independant, we are re-publishing stories to give you, a new reader, an oppurtunity to read leisurely without excavating our archives, and for our writers and artists to gain greater illumination even as the summer sun beats down on us.
Each issue has been curated under an umbrella motif that casts a cooling shadow on the four stories featured, with the handle of an editor's note to keep you from the high winds and the fierce rain. Find an emotional corner, or a curve, somewhere beyond the system, or on the street and drift in and out of your past, alternatively still and in motion, and create for yourself an alternate environment that predicts a different kind of future.
