HAARP FINAL ISSUE: CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

FINAL ISSUE: CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

In conjunction with the Berkeley Art Museum & Pacific Film Archive’s continuing exhibition “The Possible” (January 29, 2014-May 25, 2014), Hexagon Press, literary extension of The Something, announces an open call for the third and final issue of HAARP:

“THE DOVE AND THE CROW”

Dove and CrowIn late January, just as The Possible was opening its synecdochic doors to the world, Pope Francis, in a gesture of peace for a troubled Ukraine, released a white dove from his window overlooking St. Peter’s Square. The dove was immediately attacked in midair by a black crow, casting a shadow over the hearts of those who watched the dove’s helpless absorption into the crow’s sharp form, like light into a black hole. With the horrified crowd, we seek to draw meaning from this aerial foreboding.

HAARP (High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) turns its attention now, as The Possible exhausts itself, to the topic of omens, signs, prophecies, and their symbolic manifestations appearing to a world of false promises and ill-conceived utopias. We seek work which aspires to understand this dualism, this double-helix we call “the dove and the crow,” a movement of darkness overtaking the light. We ask that all submissions be received by May 15, 2014.

Submission Guidelines:

Previously unpublished works only (exceptions may be made for highly-relevant pieces).

4-6 poems of any length, but no more than 12 pages total; or up to 3 prose pieces totalling 5,000 words.

All genres and forms accepted. We encourage lamentation, beauty, alinguistics.

Please include a short (50 words or less) third-person bio.

Email all submissions (as attachments, .doc or .pdf only) and queries to hexagonpress@outlook.com.

HAARP is printed and bound with the Risograph machine and other resources made available through the print shop which is part of “The Possible” exhibition. The third issue will be released at a reading event at Adobe Books + Arts Cooperative in San Francisco on May 22nd, 2014, 8-10pm.

Sincerely,

HAARP ISSUE TWO RELEASE MOMENT ANNOUNCEMENT

HAARP EventGeorgia Guidestones Graffiti

A virtual poetry reading

and release event

Berkeley Art Museum & Pacific Film Archive, April 25th

TERMINAL ARRAY EXPOSURE

The HAARP array spans the earth but certainly isn’t limited to ambient, geographic empiricism. It is engrained in the most fundamental and colloquial aspects of life. For example there is a route, two endpoints and legions of unclean souls constituting a portion of the overall, inscribed significance of an experience.

tp-rainstorm-saturday-5-26-12

The array is engraved in our understanding, at any given moment, of the totality of an individual’s experience on Earth. It makes war with the lower atmosphere and causes active consciousness, critical thought and memory to become stricken with invisible lesions. Like radiation poisoning it is slow and quiet. It contaminates that which was blessed and multiplied by imprinting itself on the developing brain as social and cultural structures are erected. Separating its influence from base consciousness is like removing the yolk from an egg white.

haarpfire

In antiquity this phenomenon simply did not exist. The HAARP’s generation is still in childhood’s grace and was born into these new wave patterns coming in the clouds[1] in a state of gentle ignorance. The children adapt to the array’s attack while society, the outer hull or husk protecting them, is stricken from exposure and they too are unaware. The array activates a state of consciousness that we are only now beginning to grasp.

ISSUE NUMBER TWO: CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

In conjunction with the Berkeley Art Museum & Pacific Film Archive’s continuing exhibition “The Possible” (January 29, 2014-May 25, 2014), Hexagon Press, literary extension of The Something, announces an open call for the second issue of HAARP:

“THE MIND CONTROL ISSUE;”

being a poetic investigation into the forbidden world of PsyOps, MKULTRA, Manchurian Candidates, light/dark dualism, Satanic Ritual Abuse, Dissociative Identity Disorder, monarch butterflies, alternate consciousness, Mouseketeers, subliminals, triggers, alpha rays, mainstream media, and any and all symptoms or adverse reactions stemming therefrom. The illusive “VALIS” in everyday experience.

HAARP (High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) understands the seriousness of this topic, and the sustained rumination it deserves, nevertheless, it is also understood that time is not our ally in this battle upon the astral plane, therefore we ask that all submissions be received by April 15th.

Submission Guidelines:

Previously unpublished works only (exceptions may be made for highly-relevant pieces).

4-6 poems of any length, but no more than 12 pages total; or up to 3 prose pieces of 5,000 words or less each.

All genres and forms accepted. We encourage psychosomatic exploration, non-objectivity, mysticism.

Please include a short (50 words or less) third-person bio.

Email all submissions (as attachments, .doc or .pdf only) and queries to hexagonpress@outlook.com.

HAARP is printed and bound with the Risograph machine and other resources made available through the print shop which is part of “The Possible” exhibition. The release of issue two is scheduled to coincide with The Something’s April 25th “L@TE” performance at 7:30pm at BAM/PFA.

SUBMISSIONS FOR FIRST ISSUE OF HAARP ARE NOW CLOSED

saturn.hex.anim. (2)

The submission deadline for the first issue of HAARP has passed, but we continue to accept & encourage submissions of poetry, prose, praxis & prophecy for a projected two more issues through the end of The Possible exhibition (late May 2014).

We weather the Post-Modern storm, the Perfect Storm, with provisions of symbol & image, of concept & intuition.

Many thanks, a thousand thanks, countless thanks to all who have submitted thus far; we will be contacting you shortly whether or not your piece(s) was/were accepted. We have received a wide array (pardon the pun) of quality writing & can only hope the spectrum will expand & deepen still further as the next two issues take shape.

The inaugural issue of HAARP is scheduled to roll hot & luminous off the presses of the Berkeley Art Museum’s cold construct on March 10, 2014.

Sincerely & With Utmost Warmth of Heart & Eye,

THE GOLDEN HOUR

The sky is smoothest in the minutes just before sundown. Sitting on the porch for hours at a time, sipping green tea, or vodka depending on the day’s torments & proclivities, reading poetry as if it mattered, we called it “the golden hour.”

By way of warming up, I scribble a simple pattern; this helps generate a smooth flow from my lasers.

By way of warming up, I scribble a simple pattern; this helps generate a smooth flow from the  laser before the real work begins

We feigned renewed surprise each time the light shifted, each time a raccoon or a skunk came waltzing into our frame of reference from a treetop or sewer grate. Part time jobs sustained us, allowing us ample leisure time in which to wonder where the world was headed, and why it didn’t seem to include us in its plans.

To fear deeply, and yet to do everything in one's power to bring about

To fear deeply, and yet to do everything in one’s power to bring about the alien intoxication

Our hearts were growing more accustomed to each others peculiar rhythms, and each time the golden hour approached we always seemed to find ourselves together on the porch. Sometimes one of us would bring a guest, some new girl to wonder helplessly alongside us, or else an admirer of the musical compositions some of us felt compelled to cobble together once the city was dark and still.

Some lights stayed on all night, even during the energy-scarce summer months

After a few seasons carrying on in this aimless manner, we dispersed. Back then the sadness never left me, but of course now that those days are long past I miss them dreadfully. What is this riddle of pathos, this contradiction of abstraction & lived experience, in which memory must possess the favored status, regardless of the fundamental pain or error of the circumstances it represents?

We drew abstract patterns in the sky with music.

The compositions were simple, but filled with the sincerity of pure hearts
