The Team


Pranavesh Subramanian 
(he/him)
Pranavesh is an alternative comedian and writer based in New Delhi, and is a graduate from the MA Cultural Studies programme at Goldsmiths, University of London. He is interested in the confluence of capitalism and popular culture — specifically comedy, sport, and Hindi and Tamil cinema. He forms 1/4th of the alternative comedy project Brainfart Productions, and when not thinking of comedy or capitalism, he can be found playing the video game Football Manager.



Fieni Aprilia

(they/them)
Fieni is a freelance photographer and graphic designer. They took MA Cultural Studies at SOAS, University of London, focusing on South East Asian films, popular culture, and literature. Somehow, that degree makes them love bad films, weird shit, and popular culture even more than before. Amongst other things, they’re very interested in the topic of horror and hauntings as a means of social control. They enjoy talking to animals, freediving, and other extreme sports.



Ego Heriyanto 
(he/him)

E.G.O for Endless Growing Options (yaaay creativity?). A lame campus actor and a half-ass poet who went to Goldsmiths to study Black British literature and theatre, here goes one of my poems:
I do drama/counting the lingering trauma//sounds like an intrigue/but smashes like magic/leaving you/catatonic//they said 'foreignness maketh magic'/whatever//rest assured/unlike the magic of rolling/mine is not/transphobic//


Harry Isra
(he/him)
Harry Isra is a part-time researcher and amateur photographer. Upon finishing his MA in Cultural Studies at Goldsmiths University of London, he returns to Makassar, South Sulawesi, Indonesia, and becoming a collaborator in Jalur Timur (a collaborative platform consisting of researchers, artists, writers, and activists that focusses on archiving and disseminating knowledge about Eastern Indonesia). His interest is ranging from any specific quotidian examples (such as banknotes, family album, and their intersection to social, economic, and political changes) to popular culture and literature in the post-colony.

LINES

SUBMISSION by Ethan Harris Woodfin
“[...] Modern structures tend to embody the straight edge a building tool instead of an addition to a structure’s overall aesthetic value. I cannot claim to hold reason behind this trend, however it could be something to do with the increasing pace of lifestyle in urbanised areas,”(Read more)
