Description:  'Media/Countermedia' Coming as it does at the end of 
the Retrofuturism series in the (for us) uncertain year of 1993, 
there is ample evidence that our enthusiastic energy for this project 
was beginning to peter out. Nonetheless, the current issue contained 
a number of substantial contributions, including a nice piece from 
the Disdainists about a culture wallowing in a surfeit of modern art, 
and what they chose to do about it. Also noteworthy is a long text by 
the inimitable Al Ackerman, ostensibly a report from the 'Southwest 
Decentralized Mail Art Congress and Rodeo'.

In addition, a number of works continued to dwell upon the outcome of 
the then recently-completed presidential elections, and how they left 
us feeling. Most notably among them, Stephen-Paul Martin weighs in 
with his meditation on the media's role in all this in the lead 
article 'Media - Countermedia' and attempts to draw us in an 
alternative directions.

Graphics by Colin Ives and Nonlocal Variable, as well as a book 
review of Bob Black's 'Friendly Fire' by Ed Lawrence, round out the 

Project Overview: The Photostatic Retrograde Archive serves as a 
repository for a complete collection of Photostatic Magazine, 
Retrofuturism, and Psrf, in electronic form. We are posting issues in 
PDF format, at more or less regular intervals, in reverse 
chronological order to form a mirror image in time of the original 
series. When the first issue, dating from 1983, is finally posted in 
several year's time, then this electronic archive will be complete.
