Flux Hawaii

November 15, 2009

Apparently not everyone is convinced print media is dead in the water. A new magazine is rolling into town: Flux Hawaii. Best I can gather, it is a lifestyle, arts and culture rag. Which I think is a fine and noble cause. I just wonder about the choice of medium. They are allowing prospective readers to choose the first edition cover from five submissions by artists asked to portray “the future of Honolulu”, and have the originals on display over at Borders in Ward Center. I voted for the rather bleak one above, both for the artistry that went into it, and the fact that it most accurately displays the current cultural temperature. I’m a fan of optimism, but let’s be real – this state needs a lot of work.

    hello outsider’s insider, print is definitely not dead. magazines especially need to adapt and change with the times, much like newspapers are having to do. hawaii does indeed need a lot of work. hopefully we can be one more voice for the masses.

      Hi Lisa, Thanks for the comment. I do love print, and hope there will be a continuing place for it, don’t get me wrong. It just seems like a tough space to move into now. Hope you can make a go of it!
