clearline zine issue 004 - print
The environmental and textile themes of Issue 004 focus on: air, fashion, and action.
Inside the issue:
In this issue, you’ll see interviews and artists' direct perspectives and ideas surrounding the brief below - through their work. There’s a collection of sustainable textiles, as well as multimedia art which speaks to these themes as well.
Air, Fashion, and Action: Clearline 004 editors are looking for submissions that consider the textile industry’s tie to carbon emissions. Air—the latest in our series of elemental themes—shifts our focus to one of fashion's most urgent problems: the slow violence enacted by corporate air pollution. Together, we want to create a next installment that is expressive, critical, and actionable, that helps to forge a more just relationship between the air and what we wear.
The Mediums: Clearline primarily features textile and fashion pieces. However, we welcome submissions created from upcycling, sustainable material sourcing, photography, painting, prose, poetry, journalism, video, etc. If you can find a way to join the conversation, send us your work.
Lavender: We ask artists to include the color lavender in their submission. Soft and heavy, lavender has the emotional range to represent both the beauty of nature and the brutality of environmental degradation. From the riches of deep purple to wispy lilac pollution sunsets, we envision producing a gradient of lavender that represents how each of our contributors is thinking and feeling through 004’s topic.
