Protean Magazine Vol I, Issue I: Pattern Machines (PDF)

In our inaugural issue of original essays, fiction, poetry, and art, the Protean Collective seeks to explore how technology impacts the human condition. We propose to examine how endless streams of information can lead to individualized forms of insanity and dislocation, the ways in which social media is not merely reflecting the world but remaking it in its own image; how search trends can reveal societal pathologies, and much, much more.
