Strange Attractors: Investigations in Non-Humanoid Extraterrestrial Sexualities

Strange Attractors: Investigations in Non-Humanoid Extraterrestrial Sexualities

A 300 page, full color book and DVD of art, writing and film.

Encyclopedia Destructica and the The Institute of Extraterrestrial Sexuality has launched a Kickstarter campaign to complete funding for the printing of a new joint publication!
Kickstarter is all or nothing: If we cannot secure at least $10,000 in support and pre-orders by Friday, August 26th, printing will be stalled you will not be charged.


This project will publish the work of 69 artists, writers and filmmakers who have created an amazing range of expressions that expand our conception of the possibilities of alien life forms and the nature of sexual desire. Strange Attractors straddles the line between a speculative scientific exploration and a work of artistic imagination and creativity.

A publishing first for Encyclopedia Destructica, Strange Attractors will be a professionally printed 4-color offset book with a print-run of 1,500 copies. We have been collaborating and raising funds with artist and filmmaker Suzie Silver, who founded The Institute of Extraterrestrial Sexuality, for the past two years to make this dream become a reality!

Read more about this project and secure your copy of the limited run here: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1669097961/strange-attractors-nonhumanoid-extraterrestrial-se.
By pre-ordering on this Kickstarter page you are giving us invaluable support to continue pushing forward on this project.


By contributing, you will not only receive unique rewards, such as the book/DVD!, but you will be taking an active part in the independent publishing process and supporting the distribution of imaginative and experimental, visual art, writing and film.

Thank you in advance for your support.

The Pittsburgh Art Blog

The Pittsburgh Art Blog features selected pittsburgh artists and upcoming exhibits with photos from the artists and galleries. since the major press outlets do not go beyond a directory listing of exhibits, blogs are needed to promote pittsburgh artists and their work. the blog also calls attention to the inferiority complex of pittsburgh art and how it's perpetuated by the major players in town. Started on August 20,2007. pittsburgh area galleries and art venues are listed at the sister site www.PghGalleries.com.

the blog and website are volunteer projects from fine art photographer and pittsburgh artist advocate rick byerly.
