Journal HAARP

Published out of the Berkeley Art Museum & Pacific Film Archive, HAARP publishes poetry, poetic prose, phantasmagorical non-fiction, myths, esoteric/alternative critical theory, visionary scientific musings, and in general works of a delinquent and/or revolutionary disposition. We understand HAARP (High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) as an instrument of poets, angels, titans and technocrats alike, a technological extension of the Orphic tradition, expanded into the cosmic plane through man’s manipulation of natural forces (ionosphere, electromagnetic spectrum, etc).
