WHIZ WORLD

WHIZ WORLD is a publication founded by Queen Whiz, Furtips, and Ghost Whiz with the mission to highlight the lived experiences of women artists. The whizzes write from a speculative magical feminist perspective and invite others to adopt and write from a whiz persona that encapsulates their essential power. Based in the redwood biome of Northern California, WHIZ WORLD forms a network of readers and contributors to battle pervasive sexist oppression through the powerful mystique of the Whiz persona.

WHIZ BIOS:

Are you there GHOST WHIZ? It’s me, ________. The summoning mechanism for the dignified Ghost Whiz. You may encounter her within the dusts of the southern Desert Realm, but in most cases, Ghosty appears before whizzy folk in their times of much needed whignity (whiz dignity) and guidance.

QUEEN WHIZ is a Jewhiz, an environment awareness specialist, and shapeshifter. She has the gift to beckon forth an army of WHIZZES no matter her local. BEWARE WHEN SHE CREEPS IN YOUR PRESENCE!

FURTIPS is an east coast whiz adjusting to many microclimates of northern California. She wears a beard of redwood boughs and dwells amongst our vegetal allies, with her silver furred canine always nearby. One of her powers is giving pro(fur)tips on whizzin’.

WIND OF THE WHIZZES' bio is missing because she was in the wilds of the Island of California intently meditating on the fluttering flight patterns of a bird of prey.

"John Wiese has become a highly respected figure, both in the academic world of contemporary sound art as well as within the international experimental music underground. His music ranges from the serene and sublime to the frenetic and irregular, a sign of his ability to adapt and utilize a plethora of sounds to build captivating aural works. As a performer and recording artist, his expertise in composition, texture, and experimentation with sound is not restricted to work under his own name. Wiese is also known for his influential grind/noisecore band Sissy Spacek, extreme electronics unit LHD, and for his numerous collaborations with some of the finest experimental artists from around the world. He is also an accomplished visual and graphic artist with a long list of exhibitions and printed materials published across the globe. " -Anthology Film Archives
