As per the mag:

We live in an inflexible world. The rich get richer, the poor get poorer, rapists evade accountability, and the police kill Black, Indigenous, and Latinx people with relative impunity. Our conditions create a sense that the inflexibility of our world is its constant condition, incapable of bending into something beyond what it has always known and reinforced. Our Plastic issue considers what the material itself can teach us about plasticity or the process of molding something new. Whether discussing credit card debt and imposter syndrome or decriminalizing sex work and giving immigrants the rights they deserve, we are consider what it means to survive a world that refuses to bend and how we can coax a new one into being.
