We invite you to this original project from the graduate students, faculty,
and friends of the Department of Culture and Communication at New York
University- Counterblast: The e-Journal of Culture and Communication.
This second issue brings together articles and reviews exploring a variety
of cultural disciplines, including media analysis, history, art, architecture,
music, and other significant channels of communication. Forthcoming
issues will feature topic-specific themes as well as current events,
and we plan to expand the website to include web art projects.
"in the beginning" is an extension of Barbara Rose Haum's inquiry into the relationship between the mundane and
the sacred, the public and the private rituals through which we form our intimate and social sense of place.
Audience members are encouraged to actively take part in the forming of the piece throughout time.
The interactive nature of this work has been captured on a dynamic web page that will allow the performances
to continue through the use of digital and electronic media.
