RevolveWire – deadline 14 April 2007

Next RevolveWire Summer / Autumn 07

We are currently seeking worldwide contributions interpreting ‘risk’.

We are looking for pieces that take risk and rip it to pieces, personally, politically, creatively. This can come from any sector of the arts & cultural debate including but not limited to: fine art, design, critique, creative writing, personal essays, interviews / profiles, features, fashion, illustration, drawing, painting, photography, photojournalism, graphics: we want work from a broad spectrum and include 3d design, moving image, installation, music, & web-based artwork as focuses for articles. We love to see collaboration and interdisciplinary work.

Please send an initial proposal and small sample of work (under 3mb) to submissions [at] Deadline for proposals: April 14th 2007.
If you’ve not heard by May 14th, you’ve been unsuccessful this time, but please resubmit to future editions. While contributions are currently unpaid, you will get a couple of copies of your issue, plus international publicity.

RevolveWire will find you twice a year (Winter / Spring & Summer / Autumn) to bring you a carousel of creativity and debates in image, music, and text. RevolveWire will tell stories to you, and you to it. You’ll want to keep it with you and talk to it daily, like a secret obsession. Each issue we take a key word and ask collaborators and contributors to suggest their interpretation. Finding different threads and strands of the thematic fabric, we then commission, suggesting joint or solo work. We look for those who create, interpret, and transform the environment around them. RevolveWire is a printed conversation: sometimes whispered, sometimes shouted. Come and talk with us.

Issue 1, ‘Looking’, is out now:

It contains eye-opening articles on how arthouse porn and online games influence our sex lives; critique and debate about new technologies of looking at each other such as blogs and bluetooth; animator/director Chris Krupa scrutinises his own submission to SingleShot, the UK-wide short film showcase; artist/bookmaker Lisa Wigham presents some found slides in story-format; and also fashion narrative, artists’ interviews and on-page art work & photography, and political/critical commentary.

Profiles include Oscar & Bafta winning Andrea Arnold on her new film ‘Red Road’; musicians Graham Massey and Paddy Steer (Toolshed, Homelife, ex 808-State & Lionrock); Mike Grigsby (documentary filmmaker); Doug Fishbone (artist). Other writers, stylists, photographers and illustrators are either established practitioners in their fields or the new blood everyone should be watching out for. In Issue 1 you will find a free CD of Electro-Folk label Timbreland Recordings plus tracks from Toolshed.

The website is currently under construction at, but look at for general information on stockists & subscriptions etc.
