Launch — Flee Immediately

Flee Imme­di­ately! launches its Manu­al, issue #01, on Fri­day, April 13th 2012, at X Marks the Bök­ship in Lon­don…

‘To not let the struc­ture close in, but to open up: to flee imme­di­ately is to iron­ic­ally explore remain­ing.’
A Journ­al that opens the black box to explore Tech­no­lo­gies, art and writ­ing in crit­ic­al and con­tex­tu­al ways. Prin­ted on a double sided A1 sheet that is fol­ded down to A5, with dif­fer­ent paper, ideas, and con­cep­tu­al ele­ments to fit each theme, Flee Imme­di­ately! is an object to be explored and exper­i­mented with from its cre­ation to its read­ing.

And so Flee Imme­di­ately! into the vast open black box. From magic to spir­its and from trans­par­ency to secrecy, the media and tech­no­lo­gies — the pro­jects, writ­ings, and works that make up the black box — are there to be explored, pondered and reworked. The pos­sib­il­it­ies are end­less, but the lim­its are still there. And Flee Imme­di­ately! does lim­it itself as a for­um to think crit­ic­ally about media, tech­no­logy and soft­ware with­in social, polit­ic­al and cul­tur­al con­texts. But the lim­its of the black box are not always sharp. They blur and open: tech­no­logy becomes con­nec­ted to oth­er ideas, always meet­ing upon the fold and with­in the black box with new realms. It all star­ted as a gap between ›inter­act­ive media‹ pro­jects that fit with­in a crit­ic­al frame­work and a more gen­er­al under­stand­ing of what ›inter­act­ive media‹ can mean in a com­mer­ic­al world. And it is iron­ic­ally this gap that Flee Imme­di­ately! does not flee but takes as a guide, allow­ing for exper­i­ment­a­tion, devel­op­ment and defin­ing as it goes along through an open­ing up of medi­as, mediums,genres and artists/​contributors.”
