Previous Issues

The Fourth Issue

Every year the publication aims to experience significant changes to develop and enhance each issue of the publication. The fourth issue of the Third Floor publication aims to enthuse its creative readers through thoughtful imagery and intellectual articles that challenge readers to contemplate the world around them. This is depicted through the theme of 'Inspiring Minds', where the subheadings of Philosophy, Phenomena and Psychology will be portrayed.

Philosophy - The study of the fundamental nature of knowledge, reality, and existence, especially when considered as an academic discipline.
Phenomena - 1. An occurrence, circumstance, or fact that is perceptible by the senses. 2. Something that is impressive or extraordinary.
Psychology - The scientific study of the human mind and its functions, especially those affecting behaviour in a given context.

The Fifth Issue

The fifth issue takes on the theme of 'Resilience', focusing on the different methods and coping strategies people use to survive in the face of adversity. State of Mind, State of Emergency and State of Life are the running inspirations throughout this issue and Third Floor explores the different ways people manage, explain and define themselves in an uncertain, turbulent society.

State of Mind - The subconscious choices our minds make in order to cope in a crisis. Adopting a state of oblivion switching into the unconscious to drown out all that is going on around us. Or instead of shutting down, conspiracy; the mind begins to speculate to find a means of explanation and understanding.
State of Emergency - Act now, deal with consequences later. Hedonistic, destructive attitudes bringing chaos and panic as people lash out with raw and irrational emotion. Going against the grain, fighting for change in unstructured disarray.
State of Life - While difficult circumstances can bring out the worst in some, it can also bring out the best in others. Unity; pulling together for a brighter, more optimistic future. Keeping hope, faith and aspirations alive, and dreaming bigger than ever before.
