What does an artist do with boxes and boxes of archival material? And what if it belongs to her late Egyptian poet beekeeping grandfather? I had the pleasure of interviewing Joy Garnett for my 3QuarksDaily column–and now, you’ll have the pleasure of reading it. But you can also follow her on Facebook to witness the writing and image pairings of a work in progress.

The masthead is a nod to the newspaper terms “full bleed” (edge-to-edge printing) and “lede” (the introductory section of a news story that entices the reader to keep reading). Combined, FULL BLEDE expresses an intent to publish content that is intriguing, unadulterated, and beyond the edge of standardized borders of convention.
“It strikes me that images—whether they are painted or photographic—are paradoxical in that they create the impression of a fixed state.
