Media consumption is faster, shorter and more frequent than ever before. We’re racing through life at an ever-increasing speed and grabbing quick snatches of information at every turn. Short podcasts in transit. Motion picture advertising crossing the street. Video highlights in the elevator. RSS feeds and email online. Youtube and IPTV winning over conventional televisions in the living room, and some are even doubting the future of Hollywood feature films. The clever folks at Mini Shots magazine have responded to the trend by breaking printed media down into easily consumable chunks, presenting short stories as ‘delectable bite-sized pieces of literary fiction’. Each magazine contains just one short story and is wrapped in cover art by Melbourne-based photographer Bronwen Hyde. [paintings by Adrienne Benitez]
