Media Fields Journal invites critical and artistic submissions on the theme of scale.
"Scale" at once denotes a difference in size, scope, or range, and assures us that such differences can be measured and defined. Media and scale have a long, complex, and ever-changing relationship that raises a number of questions, including:
How does the size of a media object inflect its functions?
What are the effects of "scaling" media up (say, to IMAX screens) or down (e.g., to iPods)?
What is a large-scale production? What is a small-scale production?
What is a "human scale"? How can media represent things that are not on a human scale?
Who works "for scale"?
