Materiality is a themed journal that includes fiction, essay, images and poetry, focusing on the physical and the material. This issue of Materiality examines our relationship with time, as it is expressed, observed and measured by our physical environment, our bodies, and our material culture.

Inside you'll find fiction, essay, image and verse about the stuff of time: clocks and watches, calendars, sundials, timetables, time capsules, death certificates, and many other things besides. 

You'll read about how capitalism co-opted time through the invention of time clocks, the development of medieval books of hours, the rise of the squirrel people, Viking bone structures, the frozen remnants of Antarctic expeditions, and crack patterns in paintings. The hard copy of the magazine included two series of flip book illustrations; to receive gifs of these illustrations please contact chiefnantucket at
