some of the zines that i made:
about the project
The idea of writing a summary of this project seemed scary to me so I’m gonna just do my own thing and make this be very informal. Cause at the end of the day, I really just need to get this done, and the project is about having fun and making things, so I’m gonna make this task fun for me so that I can actually get it done.
how might we statement
feedback from my peers
inspiration for the zines i made and shared
a zine about a hard 24 hrs
This was a zine I made for this class in the middle of the semester. The project was to make an experience map about a walk, so I did that but in a way that felt interesting to me. Going through the experience over and over in my head, crafting the narrative, laying out the spreads, sketching and drawing it all took quite a lot of time and energy. In the end I am glad I took on this project, despite the effort required, as it is really cathartic and rewarding to see that experience on paper. There are aspects of the story that others have told me they've related to, which is also very cool
a zine about ducks
Someone apologized to me for not having their ducks in a row maybe two weeks ago and so I spent most of a weekend thinking about that and drawing ducks. I didn't initially know why, but it felt immensely important to figure out how to draw a very good duck. The result of this was a zine which I am very proud of, as the simplicity and approachable style communicate the meaning behind the work very effectively.
a zine that could be other zines
This is a zine I made to demonstrate in a physical and abstract way something I find interesting about quantum mechanics and quantum field theory. The zine is essentially a superposition of many many possible zines, as there are countless ways to cut and fold it, and it is only once you "measure" or fold the printed paper that it becomes a specific zine.
