You walk past a window that’s open, your turn and look in - what do you see? A door opens, do you walk through? Someone tries to show you a new perspective, are you receptive? Issue No. 29 of MASCULAR Magazine is dedicated to OPEN. Being open is a state of mind and a physical state of being. Can art be open? Some say that to do your best art, you need to be open. Is that true?

The word “open” has universally positive connotations. To be open is good, while to be closed - not so much. We talk of open minds, open doors, open hearts and open landscapes. The term speaks to potential. Openness is a great character quality. But is it really tangible? We speak of it, but do we practice it?  Open doors still have locks on them, after all.  Being open to suggestion implies gullibility - and we know where than can lead.

An open bottle of wine on a table; an open door leading to a beautiful garden, an open field with miles of seclusion. Being open to new ideas and experiences in the bedroom or in a dungeon. An open orifice invites. You can fill things that are open, you can close them, you can look through them and you can experience them. An open mic gives you the chance to showcase your talent. An open goal lets you score. Achievements in all forms come to those who react or engage with open opportunities.  

MASCULAR Magazine is now open to your creativity, ideas and creations. We are looking for creatives from all over the world to submit works that open our eyes to new ideas and experiences. Open your box of treasures and share your favorite gems. Our’s is an open house, ready for all visitors, so please come in...
