At this particular stop of July of 2011, it is very difficult to find much to say.
This is quite strange since it seems that since the 11th of February the floodgates of ideas and opinions have been opened, so much so that it is surprising to encounter anyone who is actually listening.
It is understandable that a people that have just regained the right to speak need to exercise that right, if only to prove its existence.It is like when you are sitting in front of tracing paper seeking a starting point to the design and you can’t get the pencil to start sketching alternatives.
That infuriating indecision that arises from the many variables inherent in the problem you are facing and the emotional weight they carry because of their very personal nature. Such frustration of not knowing where to start, or how to start …
so you simply freeze, staring deeply into this blank sheet, overwhelmed by the surrounding noise of your thoughts. From experience you know something will have to give, and the pencil will suddenly descend with confidence to draw a few lines that some how delineate a way forward to a new form.In this issue, and in response to the events on the scene, we decided that Magaz should capture some of the wealth of ideas and actions that have erupted from the volcanoes of the revolution, focusing on the creative nature of it all.
Our biggest challenge was where to stop.
We started out aiming at an insert on post-revolution creativity and we ended up with a whole issue … and probably two.It was hard to stop because it was all so exciting. If, on the other hand, you find it boring then let us hope that this is the last revolution for many years to come.
