Dear reader,

The digital version of Stationary 2 closes with James Langdon and Andrew Hugill‘s conversation on William Corliss’s book The Unexplained: A Sourcebook of Strange Phenomena (1976). This digression into the imaginative realm of pataphysics gives credence to the exceptions and contradictions, the unknowable and the anomalous, highlighting the phenomenal in what we often choose to miss.

This is the fourth and final installment of the second volume of Stationary. Original contributions by Andrew Hugill with James Langdon, Kevin Killian, Haitham Wardany, and Amir Zuabieach accompanied by an image in a new photographic series by Ann Woo. You can now find them on our website at

Against the backdrop of collective exhaustion, the volume slows at the entrance to explore a literature of self-recovery. The four installments burrow into fantasies and venture down wormholes to access the potential of our own irreverence. Through writing, these contributors intuit a future not necessarily ahead but inside. 

Stationary 2 is a follow-up to the first printed issue in 2015, edited by Heman Chong and Christina Li and distributed hand-to-hand. The digital volume continues Stationary’s desire to offer space for texts on things, ideas, figures, places, and moments that fall outside their writers’ usual creative practices.

We hope you enjoy the read(s)!

Stationary is a collection of stories disseminated by word of mouth. Loosely forged as a recess from one’s productive practice, we invite artists, curators, and writers to take stock of, elaborate on, and chart their obsessions, fascinations, and influences within a suspended moment afforded by the publication’s pages.
