In the Mix, by Arlan Andrews, Sr.

Analog Science Fiction and Fact, July/August 2015; ~1,300 words
Rating: 2, Not recommended

A young woman in the late 21st Century makes a living creating a very strange sort of online art.

Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

The notion that what makes Regina's art special is her use of old-fashioned books makes for a nice surprise.

The first few paragraphs are almost impossible to decipher. That's probably the point--it shows us how alien her culture is to ours, even after just 50 years or so--but it goes on for way too long. There is actually no story here at all--this is just a slice of life.
