issue 7- call for collages- KNOWLEDGE

the next issue (#7) of la colle, the collage zine, will come out sometime this winter.
in order for it to exist it needs your collages and other contributions!

the theme this time around is KNOWLEDGE.

Main Entry: knowl·edge
Pronunciation: \ˈnä-lij\
Function: noun
Etymology: Middle English knowlege, from knowlechen to acknowledge, irregular from knowen
Date: 14th century
-the fact or condition of knowing something with familiarity gained through experience or association (2) : acquaintance with or understanding of a science, art, or technique b (1) : the fact or condition of being aware of something (2) : the range of one's information or understanding c : the circumstance or condition of apprehending truth or fact through reasoning : cognition d : the fact or condition of having information or of being learned a person of unusual knowledge.

-the sum of what is known : the body of truth, information, and principles acquired by humankind b archaic : a branch of learning

you can of course take whatever position you want on this theme. albert einstein said, "Imagination is more important than knowledge. For while knowledge defines all we currently know and understand, imagination points to all we might yet discover and create."

format: the zine is photocopied in black and white on legal paper. While there is room for one center-fold (or I guess two if you think about the cover) 8 ½ x 14 other collages will be reproduced on 8 ½ x 7 spaces. You can email it to my yahoo adddress, juliejeanus (a hi-res, 300 dpi image).

i hope to hold a collage night sometime in the near future too, so stay tuned for that.

i look forward to seeing what you will contribute!
