Overview
Flint Magazine is a multimedia magazine in a box featuring the work of over 20 international contributors; artists, writers, filmmakers, and designers.

What is Flint Magazine?
Flint is an art magazine about rocks. The first and second issues bring together works from artists and writers spanning the globe. The Magazine is built on creative collaboration - many of these beautiful works live alongside one another in an archival box, while others are available online through Sensate [www.sensatejournal.com].

Why Rocks?
Rocks are a natural archive and the main point of inspiration for Flint Magazine. They record history as layers of sediment and are the oldest examples of visual symbolism and material technology. We explored the rock as a medium for art, mysticism, place, and history.

Rocks preserve time, space, and artifacts in the same way the internet accumulates information - always collecting and storing without editing itself. Rocks compact history, yet still maintain a beautiful and unique form.

Who's behind Flint Magazine?
Ben Gaydos, [goodgood, UM-Flint], and Maia Asshaq, [DittoDitto Books] began working on the magazine in 2015. They were joined by artist Joe Reinsel later that year to assist in audio and sound curation, and Julia Yezbick, from Sensate Journal in 2016, to help develop an online platform.

Ben and Maia spent a large chunk of this time researching interesting voices that shared their passion and mild obsession with rocks. These contributors span the globe from Brazil to Zimbabwe. They include artists, writers, scientists, filmmakers, and designers like Francisco López, Paul Elliman, Warren Defever, Olayami Dabls, Ana Vaz, and Pauline Oliveros.

 

When can I get Flint Magazine?
Flint Magazine has been in development for nearly three years. The research and pre-production phase has been generously supported by the University of Michigan – Flint, although it’s still not finished.

This is where you come in. We need your help to complete the final stages of the project. With your help, we hope to ship out the first issue of Flint magazine in February 2018.

** Please note a portion of the proceeds of Flint Magazine will go towards two organizations working in Flint; The Flint Public Art Project's after school art education program and the Flint Child Health and Development Fund.**
 

Once complete, you can find it at the following places;

Online at www.dittoditto.org, other fine / art bookstores.
