Come celebrate the release of See/Saw with a night of readings and libations.
See/Saw is a new literary magazine produced by San Francisco Art Institute (SFAI) graduate students, launched by five founding collaborators: Guramrit Kaur, Teddi Meislahn, Desiree Rios, Chu Wang, and Aaron Wilder. Each collaborator provided 1 photograph and 1 piece of writing that another collaborator responded to with the opposite form (responding to photography with writing and responding to writing with photography). All collaborators worked to launch a new graduate publication using their skills, experience, and passion to create a sustainable, ongoing, and flexible platform for open expression and collective dialogue.
The project significantly benefitted from the expertise of its two mentors: Asuka Ohsawa and Whitney Lynn. These two mentors provided invaluable insight on how to effectively collaborate artistically and on all aspects of creating a successful publication.
The five magazine founders view the See/Saw model of interpretation, inspiration, and artistic response as truly collaborative and an exciting way to start something at SFAI with a potential future legacy that could evolve over time as different collaborators leave their mark on the publication for years to come.
