In this issue

To rewrite your mistakes, at least on paper, has become the easiest thing to do today. At the press of a button, the patiently blinking line gobbles up your words, thoughts, ideas, waiting for the next set of letters to take its place. We live in a world where ‘error’ is not a pause, but something that ceases to exist, something erased.
And so, this issue, we look at the changing meaning of ‘Error’ and what it entails to straddle that line between unrecognisable existence and recognisable disappearance. We look at artists who are pushing boundaries deliberately with a stoic, non-conformist vision that refuses to succumb to a false idea of perfection. And in the process, brings an unexpected experience to the fore that puts the onus of the blinking line on us; in choosing to go backwards or forwards, we either become filled with the colours of the past or empty out patterns into the landscape of the future.

The Imperfect Layout To The Imperfect Mystery

Jane De Suza’s ‘The Spy Who Lost Her Head’ doesn’t feature a protagonist with superhuman skills of deduction, nor a plot that fits together like a jigsaw puzzle. Here, quirks and imperfections are pushed into the spotlight
