About the Art

Our cover features panels from Reservoir, a collection of modular paintings by Cindy Morefield.  To read more about the Reservoir project and to see more of the panels, check out Cindy’s essay in this issue!



Welcome to our biggest issue yet of Mixitini Matrix.  We’ve got more of everything: art, prose, poetry, multigenre pieces, translations. The work takes us around the world and down the street; it reveals collaborative and creative processes, connections, and disconnections.  Fairytales are dismantled and rebuilt, relationships tangled and untangled. Images cohere and disappear, and languages rub up against each other, their vocabularies spelling out honor, loss, and desire. Go ahead, have a look around, spend time with our digital artifacts of the shifting world; tumble in.
