CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
THE DIGITAL SUBLIME

The editorial theme of the next edition is Cloud computing. What divides the physical world from the digital sublime? Here we mean sublime in terms of an uncanny experience, overwhelming and unfathomable—as well as in an ironic sense. How does the cloud affect us irl and what is our relation to it? Dwelling between on-demand resource and the depletion of natural resources, between the ephemerality of documents and the eternity of data storage and digital debris (if you pay the price), its computing power poses a new paradigm to our virtual daily lives and the way we operate. It is omnipresent and omniscient, connecting various pieces of a greater puzzle, a footprint of our digital existence.

Revolving around the Cloud, we encourage creatives from all fields to contribute to the new issue of RIFE magazine, The Digital Sublime. From text to multimedia, submit your work in a format which best conveys your idea.

RIFE is a magazine that focuses on topics which are brought to light/emphasized in the context of a world currently under a pandemic, as well as looking forward from it. We accept all kinds of submissions from every creative field, and will be focusing on content that reveal experimental character and/or depth, critique and research.

The submission form is available here.

Please send us your submission with the form through our email.

Deadline until December 12th.

A REGULAR PRACTICE

Notions of time and space are altered. A disease spanned the globe, and its consequences are unprecedented. We are witnesses to a Global Pandemic crisis. Putting on hold the debate on borders as a physical and geographic limit and its implying crises of identity and conflict, countries turned to fences and walls as a means to mitigate an inescapable quandary common to all worldwide. It is no novelty that millennials and Gen Z are characterised by distancing and alienation, but the new order imposed by the pandemic has imposed a revival of the "bedroom generation" in the post-digital era. Everything is reduced to the display screen and the simulated reality within it.

A digital magazine entitled RIFE—initially created within the discipline of Editorial Design in the MA of Communication Design at the Fine-Arts Faculty of Lisbon—emerged as a response to the pandemic condition and its global effects on the individual, social, political, ambiental and cultural levels, raising questions surrounding what we know as our reality at this day in age. These questions are made and answered by designers, now being opened to a greater spectrum of creatives. This is pertinent as we creatives operate within our contexts, and in order to render ethical alternatives to realities presented, we must investigate and understand them. At the moment we were quarantined, we were physically inhibited to circulate freely, so we turned to question how to circulate content digitally—not by option but by necessity—, thus revealing a doorway to cultural production in the digital world and simultaneously embracing the democratic distribution of the open source medium that is the internet.
