You don’t have to look very hard to find media art these days: disposable Snapchat videos, Massive Multiplayer Online video games, video calls, and endless Instagram feeds are all part of our collective experience in the 21st century. Like our advances in science, our media is constantly evolving due to new technological discoveries and artists breaking fresh ground. And perhaps, like science, it is helping us understand our world a little better.

A camera’s aperture is defined as the space through which light passes in order to create an image. Similarly, the aim of this journal is to bring to light original and engaging takes on the media we consume daily. As we explore this vast canon of art with clear eyes and open minds, we hope that the works we explore will not only entertain but inform and edify.
