Floating.point is a monthly literary, art and design ’zine published in Seattle.

We believe that arts and technology are expressions of the same vital energy of the human spirit and are completely compatible. We welcome you to submit your most entertaining and though-provoking attempts at this fusion. Especially if they resulted in explosions.

Floating.point is an integrated ‘zine representing the work of all possible and impossible minds and bodies from neurotypical human beings to trauma-informed neural networks, from mechanical Turks to Bolivian druids, from outsider artists to inside traders, from Afrofuturist romance novelists to Iranian Steampunk cosplay enthusiasts, from a wide range of social justice warriors, sorcerers, bards, clerics, monks, paladins, and wizards. Floating.point aims to deliver to our readers the most fanciful, phantasmal, and polychromatic words and pictures black on white can render.
