Algebra is Tramway’s first digital literary journal. Edited by Beatrice Colin, the first issue includes fiction, poetry, memoir, photography and visual art from a range of contributors.
The theme, borrowed from Keith Farquhar's recent exhibition in Tramway More Nudes in Colour, Glasgow, is nude or nudity. The range of pieces include a story inspired by the Art Deco painter Tamara de Lempick, as well as a set of poems that focus on the body. Elsewhere, writers go on barefoot walks or present a personal history of tattoos, stand naked in their kitchens or examine the spaces, both emotional and physical, that are usually hidden from view. Contains language that is not suitable for children.
