  • The pacificREVIEW Wants Submissions on "Vivarium" Theme
  • Deadline info Deadline: October 1, 2014 - February 28, 2015

A "vivarium" is an area for keeping and raising animals or plants for observation or research. The ecosystem is simulated on a smaller scale, a microcosm with controls for environmental conditions. Humans create vivariums for both ourselves and other species. In these environments (zoos, shopping malls, universities, etc.), we breathe simulation, observe phenomena both natural and unnatural, speak in symbols, and cypher our dreams. We inhabit our own creations, thriving in the flux between the abstract and the absolute. The pacificREVIEW seeks fiction, nonfiction, poetry, graphic narratives, and artwork that interrogates the ever-blurring line between "real" and "unreal" settings. sdsupacificreview.submittable.com/submit
