Writer/artist Maia Asshaq and graphic designer Benjamin Gaydos collaborated with Sensate Journal to produce a remarkable collection of sensory experiences in the inaugural edition of Flint Magazine. They describe Flint thus:

Flint is an unbound multimedia magazine in a box. The magazine was modeled after Aspen Magazine, the highly influential art journal “in a box” from late 60s. Flint Magazine examines contemporary art practice and criticism. However Flint Magazine offers a poetic antonym of sorts — where Aspen is a tree, Flint is a rock.

This issue of the journal includes a beautifully designed and packaged vinyl LP record with a compelling collection of audio tracks from six artists. It includes my recording of the seismic sounds of the Great Tohoku Earthquake of 2011.
