In a time when movement, both physical and social, is at the forefront of our cultural experiences, when awareness and visibility of social and political movements is greater than ever; this digital issue has shed light on the ways in which motion, transformation and culture often connect. With the presidential elections in full swing and the Olympic games beginning, there have been many opportunities for kinetic reflection and contemplation. It has become clear that as we move through our lives, we are always transforming, never the same from one moment to the next.
Exploring the theme of movement and kinetics has allowed us an understanding of how this topic, whether literal or conceptual, can be a very personal, physical, and emotional experience, but also a collective one. From the creativity and art we produce to the activism and social movements we inspire, movement and change is the only inevitable.
We feel extremely lucky to have worked with talented, diverse members of our community to explore motion and kinetics. In this issue, we highlight the works of Brandy Eve Allen, Shelley Neuman, Xaviera Lopez, Francine Thirteen, Laurie Louise, Damien Gilley and dotdotdash, Adi Putra, Patrick Stearn of Poetic Kinetics, Sam Hamilton and as per usual, Armoire Magazine's exclusive works from Editors Kimberly Marie and Jeannot Quenson.
