24 Hour Zine, Issue Three, January 29, 2019
24 Hour Zine, Issue 3 was created from scanned images, textures, poems, prints, and patterns. The yellow bars of text reflect what is on my mind on the day these items are assembled into a zine.
This zine was created as a visual journal, a mixed media fusion of writing and art. A 24 hour visual journal is a snapshot of a moment in my life, an opportunity to gather the clutter around me and synthesize these mundane materials into a special time capsule documenting this particular moment. To start, I gather up whatever paper-based material is in reach-- receipts from my wallet, take-out menus from the dining room table, doodles in my meeting notebook--anything that seems recent and somewhat inconsequential. Magazine clippings, too. I take a look at this pile of stuff, take a deep breath, and then write for 15 minutes without pausing. I allow the random thoughts bouncing around in my head to come spilling out onto the paper or screen. This is the raw material for my 24 hour zine which is assembled, copied and then disseminated.
