“Square” with Four Sides, balance and stability is considered to be a basic form in both horizontal and vertical symmetrical and abstraction. which represents quaternary, equilibrium, stability and robustness, As a symbolic figure, it stands for decisive stance and stability in order, harmony and cohesion. Meaning, in comparison to the circle and triangle representing the sky, the interior angles of the square, which is said to represent the earth, draws the minister into its center, creating consistent information and perception that expresses an unshakable sharp view.
Visual artists and designers have used the square as plastic to describe their themes with many different configurations. The square has been a key form in many public buildings.

ATTIC is an international assembling zine compiled by Nicola Winborn. It is also an international exploration of colour and each issue will be dedicated to a particular pigment.
All pages submitted to ATTIC ZINE must be handmade and original. This call is focused on the colour PURPLE: this means that your pages must make predominant use of purple in any shade or tone. This does not mean that you cannot use other colours too, but if you do introduce other pigments, purple must still be the most significant one. (If you have any questions around this, please do not hesitate to ask.)
Work from the following genres will be accepted for Attic Zine: Visual Poetry; Asemic Writing; Collage; Rubber Stamp Art; Dada; Fluxus; Mixed Media; Abstract/Experimental Comics; and Abstract/Non-Representational Art.
Once you are ready to post your pages to Nicola, please contact her through Messenger on Facebook and she will give you the full postage address for Attic Zine.
Each participant will receive their very own copy of the issue in which they are included. If you want to make a donation to cover the cost of return postage, this will be most gratefully received.

Censorship is anathema to the Fluxus spirit. However, exhibited works cannot violate Canadian law. Fortunately, the laws protecting artistic freedom of expression are relatively strong in Canada. Basically, anything goes, except child pornography and hate speech. Hate speech includes, "advocating genocide", "publicly inciting hatred", and "promoting hatred".
Given the history of persecution of sexual minorities, the curators are committed to including artworks that may depict or document manifestations of homophobia, provided that such works do not violate the law.
It is illegal to produce, distribute, or possess child pornography in Canada, as such work deemed to be such by the curators, will be destroyed upon receipt.
NOTICE: The curators reserve the right to refuse to exhibit and/or document any submission at their absolute and sole discretion.
