“The ultimate human freedom… The power to choose, to respond, to change.”
– Stephen Covey (1932 – 2012), American educator, author, businessman, and keynote speaker.

In a year full of political unrest, natural disasters, and all-round bad things, it feels like we’re on the precipice of an apocalypse (our money is on zombies). With our impending doom seemingly upon us, we invited creatives from all around the world to give us their interpretations on the idea of ‘POWER’.

Through artwork only, we challenged our 54 contributing artists to explore the idea of ‘POWER’ in its varying extremes. Some have interpreted it as something extraordinary and out of your control, while others see it as a more internal struggle. Issue Four has become a historical record of the current times and setiments experienced by our creatives. We have curated the works in this publication to cover six categories: the self, relationships, politics, technology, nature and the supernatural. See the full list artists.
