The first issue visits identity in various forms and concepts: how identity has formed art or art choices; how choices or art impact identity; or how an identity is formed and presented through concepts in art. Identity as identity formation, presentation, and exploration through different artforms, as an individual or artist.

The people featured in Identity touch on very different things, from photographing a Burmese refugee community in Zomi Town aka Tulsa, a popular American sport influencing art practices, exploring identity as an outsider, looking at hybrid identity through art, how fan fiction manifests itself in art, to finding community within a subculture. So, we decided to use these ideas to inspire our approach for designing the whole publication.
