Phox Pop Issue 5
|Publisher Names||by Phox Pop|
Phox Pop magazine Issue 5 is 96 (advertising-free) pages of stories about thinkers, seekers, makers, and doers.
Inside, readers will discover:
- A scientist who applied her experience with animals to plants, and found some shockingly similar characteristics.
- An ex-officer investigating what happens to literature and language when it becomes digitised.
- The gender stereotype-redefining research that puts women at the forefront of major innovation in ancient history.
- Plus, learn about the remarkable memory techniques of indigenous cultures.
- And hear from an artist whose university project examined the ambiguity of cancer, and learn about another whose textile art practice is generating confidence and renewed interest in creativity.
I like to think of Phox Pop magazine as a cabinet of curiosity in paper and ink form.
Phox Pop (foks pop)
Vox populi is a Latin phrase that literally means ‘voice of the people’; shortened to vox pop, in media it is an interview with members of the public, the ‘word on the street’. Replacing the ‘v’ with the ‘ph’ from photography – based on the Greek phos/light and graphê/drawing or writing – we create phox pop.
Through carefully-crafted words and striking images, Phox Pop tells the stories of ambitious and inspiring people, and their creative and curious pursuits.
Inside its ad-free pages, you will find tales of and by people from fields spanning art, science, history, exploration, and experimentation.
Phox Pop magazine is a free-range selection of stories that I would like to read myself, and I hope you will, too.
