Dear Frameworkers,

Many of you already know about INCITE Journal of Experimental Media, a
publication that I founded in 2008 to support divergent approaches to
writing (creative, critical, academic, curatorial, journalistic) on
experimental cinema and media art in all of its currents forms. In case
you're not familiar with INCITE, the journal's website is located here:

Since 2008, INCITE has produced two print issues ("Manifest" and
"Counter-Archive") containing scholarly articles, manifestos, artist
statements, drawings and other artwork; as well as an artist multiple, a DVD
compilation, an ongoing, online interview series (Back and
and numerous screenings and events. Past contributors and collaborating
organizations include Jonas Mekas, Jenny Perlin, Richard Kerr, Bruce Conner,
Craig Baldwin, Double Negative Collective, Ben Russell, Tasman Richardson,
Sandra Gibson and Luis Recoder, Cory Arcangel, Penny Lane, Michael Robinson,
Aleesa Cohene, William C. Wees, The Images Festival (Toronto), WNDX:
Festival of Film and Video Art (Winnipeg), Available Light Screening
Collective (Ottawa), among many others.

Over the past year, we have published new interviews with Jennifer
Montgomery <http://incite-online.net/montgomery.html>, Thorsten
Oliver Laric <http://incite-online.net/laric.html> and Sam
as part of our Back and Forth Series. We have also refreshed the look, and
added most of the content from Issue #2:
Counter-Archive<http://incite-online.net/issuetwo.html>to the website.
 You can also download a free PDF copy of Issue #2
here <http://incite-online.net/INCITE_No2.pdf>.

Yesterday we launched a Kickstarter
raise funds for the printing of our third issue, "New
Ages." <http://incite-online.net/issuethree.html> It will be our biggest
and most colorful issue yet, featuring over 160 pages of writing, art work,
interviews, scholarly articles, more than 20 full color images, a cover
design by Jacob Ciocci, and contributions by 25 artists, filmmakers,
writers, curators, and scholars from across the U.S. and Canada.

INCITE #3 aims at addressing the generational shifts and divides in today’s
experimental film, video, and new media spheres, utilizing the 2010
International Experimental Media Congress as an opportunity for reflection.
In addition to compiling a dossier of idiosyncratic reflections on the
Congress, this issue also focuses on the renewed fascination with "New Age"
spirituality, philosophy and aesthetics among contemporary media artists.

You can view the table of contents and read the Congress dossier

Other highlights of this issue include Walter Forsberg's wide-ranging essay
about the computer animation pioneer Lillian Schwartz (which comes with a
3-D twist), Thomas Beard's astute analysis of Shana Moulton's *Whispering
Pines* video serial, a Jacob Ciocci and Jesse McLean "G-Chat," and Brian L.
Frye's citation study of *The New York Times, *which "measures the relative
importance of avant-garde filmmakers."

The full list of contributors includes: Dominic Angerame, Jaimz Asmundson,
Jeremy Bailey, Christina Battle, Thomas Beard, Roger Beebe, Michael
Betancourt, Mireille Bourgeois, Jacob Ciocci and Jesse McLean, Clint Enns,
Walter Forsberg, Brian L. Frye, Benj Gerdes, Brett Kashmre, Eliza Koch,
Kevin McGarry, James Missen, Shana Moulton, Peter Nowogrodzki, Marisa Olson,
Andrew James Paterson, Ken Paul Rosenthal, Ekrem Serdar, Leslie Supnet, Tess

Please consider making a
however small. All funds go towards the production and printing costs of
Issue #3. To show our appreciation, we're offering rewards such as INCITE
issues, posters, DVDs, and postcards, as well as an array of goodies from
past and current contributors. Those of you with the means to make a larger
contribution will receive a special, limited-edition print by Leslie Supnet:
A brand new, four-color silkscreened portrait of the legendary avant-garde
film- and videomaker George Kuchar.

Thanks for your time and consideration!
