INCITE Journal of Experimental Media #5
2014 – 2015

"Even when we don't want to address the megaplex, we already have. We live in ever-more intimate proximity to impersonal fame and distant celebrity. Los Angeles doesn't just play itself, as Thom Andersen said in 2003, today the city asserts itself: it is popular, atomized, and always in dispersal. And now it's in INCITE too – though even in absence, the presence of Hollywood was here all along." – Excerpt from Peter Nowogrodzki's "Editorial Statement"
