For those who have been wondering what’s happened to Static, the journal edited by students of the London Consortium…

Ironically, following the publication of Issue 08 – General, Static has been keeping true to its name, transfixing its gaussian noise into freeze-screen snow, an appropriate visual background to a hiatus that has been lasting for more than three years.

Well, the hiatus is finally coming to an end: a group of current London Consortium students has recently decided to revive the Static project, initiated by Vlad Strukov, in collaboration with Martine Rouleau, Irini Marinaki and Konstantinos Stefanis, in 2005. After a series of meetings, proposals, votes, debates, minutes and e-mails, the Editorial team has finally come to a decision with regards to the theme and general structure for Issue 09, and the call for papers will be published as early as tomorrow (7th February). We wouldn’t want to spoil the surprise, so please come back later for more details on the next issue of Static!

But that’s not even all. Of course, we now have the EcStatic blog, to contain all that wouldn’t fit within the journal proper and collect the Editors’ outpouring of ideas. And there may be more side projects on the horizon…

We will probably be experimenting with the design for both the Static website and the EcStatic blog, so forgive us for the frequent fluctuations…
