Exploring the pastoral, ASPECT shifts the concept of urban as center in Volume 10: Rural. Proving that bucolic concerns are equally vital, this issue features nine artists who challenge and investigate the real, imagined, and mediated natural world. These artists effectively employ high- and low- tech transformations and interventions which concentrate the attention of the art world, however temporarily, on the vast world outside of urbanity.
