Vectors is an online publication that functions at "the intersection of intersection of culture, creativity, and technology". Not only does the journal feature pieces that details technological and cultural innovations but the publication operates with this multimedia space: "utilizing a peer-reviewed format and under the guidance of an international board, Vectors features submissions and specially-commissioned works comprised of moving- and still-images; voice, music, and sound; computational and interactive structures; social software; and much more.
