Neural magazine celebrates 15 years of publishing with issue 31 and joining S.W.A.M.P. group (Doug Easterly and Matt Kenyon) for a collective micro printing action.

Subscribers will receive a numbered and limited edition of a S.W.A.M.P.'s Notepad sheet of paper with an envelope. It looks like an everyday yellow legal paper, but each line is constructed of micro-printed text and contains the personal details of Iraqi civilian casualties.

Subscribers are triggered to write a letter or memo or draw a picture on it and send it to the White House, then signing up for a free replacement sheet on the S.W.A.M.P. website, if they want. Once in circulation each sheet then acts as a Trojan horse slipping the unwanted and unacknowledged civilian body count data into official governmental archives.

This is a joint action that proves how paper and pixel together can make the difference.
