In the past 10 years, a growing interest in #LosAngeles has attracted creative #people from all over to the #city.

In this issue, we address what’s changed in this deracinated and polyethnic #California #metropolis.
We look into the heart of the city’s peculiar #mythology, its legends, #values, images, and #dreams, old and new. Is LA historian Mike Davis’s claim that the city is “playing the double role of #utopia and #dystopia for advanced #capitalism” still valid? From the original ’80s #BladeRunner to the recent remake, what’s changed in #LA’s vision of the #future? Is Los Angeles really projecting a better future, or just another illusion? As they say, it’s the final frontier. We revisit LA’s mythology, and rather than filter it through #culturaltheory, we look at it through real experiences, intimate stories, and the personal perspectives of LA figures — #artists, #writers, #historians, #surfers, #chefs, #scientists, and #personalities.

From the first page to the last, the articles are organized as an atmospheric and #geographical journey through the city, starting with the #coast, the light, the #ocean, then heading out to the #Eastside, returning to the #Westside, then driving out to the #desert.

It takes a kind of #innocence to love LA, but it’s surely the right place to face these confusing times.
