With LUNCH 14, the editors wondered if they could use the frontier story itself to de-center its power. They divide this task into four sections: Edges explores the form and possibilities of the edge itself, and unravels the hard binary condition of the frontier. Wild flips the narrative around, picking apart established categorizations of wild and tame to deny their separate-ness. Metrics examines methods of observing and quantifying themselves as tools for gaining new understandings: the map creates "the frontier" so to change the way we map or measure is to change the frontier itself. And finally, Culture takes on the "us" and "them" of the frontier, shifting our perception of this as a binary divide to a growing rhizomatic network of beings: where the meeting of cultures does not mean appropriation, erasure and dominance but a hope for generative complexity.
