October–November 2020Now and Then
To mark the fifteenth iteration of the Open Space magazine, we invited a handful of contributors to issues past to revisit their original commissions. Beyond the specificity of this ask, we tried not to stipulate much in the way of form or content, allowing for the relationship between then and now to be as direct or oblique as felt right. All but one of these pieces was completed this spring, in advance of a late-May publication date. And then: OS went on hiatus. And now: this issue has become something of a time-capsule fragment — earning its name, and then some.
