Into the Midst: An Out-of-Series Inflexions issue *FLASH ONLY

This issue consists of participant responses to Into the Midst', a SenseLab event that occurred in October of 2012. Into the Midst was a five-day collaborative research-creation workshop in and around the SATosphere, the Society for Art and Technology's interactive immersive projection environment (aka 'The Dome').

This issue is the first experiment in our new 'out of series' journal issues. Authorship within these issues will be treated as a collective experience, and contributions to an issue engaged by the design as a chorus. The design of this particular issue is a collaboration between Erin Manning and Leslie Plumb.
