Small zine

This new zine/artist book draws together a juxtaposition of figures and abstract shapes under the narrative title ‘The Burden of the Small’. The figure in silhouette explores human scale within certain ‘frames’, while abstract small objects supporting large overbearing blocks allude to the oppressive nature of ‘regime’ states (whether capitalist, communist or fascist). The collages are in some ways suggestive of inequalities in class strata and the precarious balance of society as a whole.

A4 single sheet folded to A6 size booklet with additional insert – printed original paper/digital collage.

Something Fishy

Some experimentation today with a few ideas for the East Cliff Creatives zines project. Fishi-Fishy is a little narrative across 6 sheets; a series of collages working with images of scabbard fish, originally photographed at the Funchal Market Hall, Madeira. The single A4 sheet with double-sided printing can be folded into an A6 sized mini-book format, with an open-out central poster image. #eastcliffcreatives #zines
