Content is organized by most recent manuscript and Visual Dialog.
(Editor’s note: Dialogs may appear in various forms and formats. Key to understanding the journal’s use of the term “dialog” is to understand it as a conversation, an exchange of sorts between the the author and the reader/viewer. A conversation between “you” and your experience. Meaning is not always clear and obvious, that is the point. Conversations between “you’ and “you” are complex, if you listen.)
