The fourth issue of SOILED, Windowscrapers, is now available! Purchase a printed copy for US delivery or international delivery. Windowscrapers marks the first in a series of newly-designed issues produced at a local print house in limited edition. The issue was funded with the support of 165 generous Kickstarter backers.
Windowscrapers probes the three fundamental functions of a pane of glass: transparency, refractivity, and reflectivity. In turn, it indulges prying eyes, projective portals, and mirrored surfaces to explore voyeuristic people-watching, alternate realities, and strategic exposure.
