Isn't art a journey? The incredible photographs of David Parker show that art can take us to another world, one described in myth and poetry. Parker talks about his mystical landscapes and why he refuses to divulge their locations. Artist and psychotherapist Rue Harrison talks about how Indigo Animal appeared from beyond the known territory and became an ongoing narrative cartoon (appearing in each issue of w & c). Katina Huston reports on smart art, "Observations on Art in Academia," and Mark Bulwinkle leads us to the work of Oakland outsider artist, John Abduljaami.
