SUBURBIA
BY GRAY WINSLER W/ART BY MOON_PATROL

You have no idea of the life that exists just beneath your toes. I sure as hell didn’t, not back in ‘66. Spent my whole life walking atop this earth, never given much thought to what’s below, never thinking about the thousands and thousands of miles between us and the other side. Just rock and dirt, they tell us. But it ain’t true. There’s a whole other world living just beneath our feet.

“Move your wrist, Bill. You’re making puddles — it ain’t good for the plants.” Marge scolded me, back on the day we made our discovery.

“Uh huh.” I said, taking another puff of my pipe.

“Lucky we have anything growing here with you waterin’ like that.”

I learned to keep my mouth shut in those years. You see — Marge and I wasn’t in a great spot then. I loved that woman, but her heart seemed to have shriveled after our kids left the nest. Can’t say the same wasn’t true for me. Most days I couldn’t find much of an excuse to get up from the recliner.

Werewolf Radar: Strife On Mars by Nate Balding

WEREWOLF RADAR: STRIFE ON MARS
BY NATE BALDING

A lot of people frown on the idea of child soldiers. And sure, trafficking in prepubescent souls for the purposes of indoctrinating a small army into becoming unrelenting killers beyond the purview of self-awareness sounds pretty bad. But who else are you gonna get to try out your insane experimental time traveling device?
Andrew Basiago was 6 years old the first time his father pushed him through a portal allowing him to instantaneously move from a secret military base in New Jersey to a CIA black site in New Mexico.

END OF SILENCE: A PUNK SURVEY OF GREGG DEAL
INTERVIEW BY KRYSTI JOMEI | PHOTOS BY WES MAGYAR

Colorado-based artist, activist and disruptor Gregg Deal just launched his solo-exhibition, End of Silence: A Punk Survey of Gregg Deal, at RedLine Contemporary Arts Center in Denver. As part of the gallery’s current theme, Roots Radical: An Exploration Into Indigenous Ancestry and Experience, Gregg’s show focuses on the parallels of Punk and Indigenous identity, where he explores the disenfranchisement of Native people, pushing against oppressing power structures and challenging authority, while fighting for the truth and remaining wholeheartedly free. He took the time to chat with us about his show and his experiences behind it.

BEATIE WOLFE: FROM GREEN TO RED AT DENVER’S SUPERNOVA 7TH DIMENSION FILM FEST
INTERVIEW BY KRYSTI JOMEI

From Green To Red by Birdy friend and visionary artist Beatie Wolfe is an environmental protest piece built using 800,000 years of historic climate data to visualize rising CO2 levels. Unveiled around the world from the Nobel Prize Summit, London Design Biennale and the UN Global Climate Conference COP26 to name a few, it’s now Denver’s turn to experience it at this year’s Supernova 7th Dimension Film Festival downtown where throughout September the art piece will be projected onto the Daniels & Fisher clocktower. Beatie is also the Guest Curator for the fest’s Silent Screen Outdoor LED Exhibition, a city-wide public art takeover where her call-to-action for participating artists is Activating Environmental Awareness. We had the chance to talk to Beatie before she heads our way to the Mile High City.

TRANSFORMATION
BY ZAC DUNN | VISUALS BY JOHN HEENAN

From the moment we draw our very first breath until the 21 grams floats skyward and the cool blanket takes us into the light we are
TRANSFORMING 
Stasis by definition is death. 
The vibration of atoms in an inanimate object will ultimately turn to dust. 
How do we as artists choose to transform? Is it even a choice at all?
