Zines

Us Out of Time

2021

This is a pretty loosely defined zine I put together as part of a group project. My group compiled images and wrote statements relevant to our experience starting college during the pandemic, which I took and turned into these collages which we presented in class. 

 

Working with this material made me change up my usual graphic design style, and I really liked how Indesign inverts the colors behind any text you highlight, so I used that effect throughout. 

 

I'm currently working on a zine that combines these color contrast highlit words, with my usual monochrome, printer scanner style.

CalArts: Get Free or Die Tryin'!

2021

I made this mini zine for my Intro to Radical Politics class in response to our lesson about the Free Cooper Union movement. 

When tuition was instituted at the historically free Cooper Union in 2011, students began a historic and impeccably organized protest in order to Free Cooper Union, and even held teach-ins at CalArts.

Contentment

2020

A collection of sonnets written (more like collaged) with quotes from a collection of zines from the '80s, '90s, and '00s.

I found that this method made some unexpectedly meaningful poems, because I never went into the process trying to write about a specific topic. Everything that came out is very essential to me. Queerness, Los Angeles, this like niche late nineties artist scene I grew up in the dregs of, even when it gets into critiquing religion at the end, that's a lifelong discomfort I forgot about at some point. This is definitely the most Zoë piece of literature ever.

My Self Indulgence is Revolutionary 

2020

This was the first manifesto I ever wrote, and actually the first time I really assessed my practice as an artist.

This manifesto echoes the artist's statement I wrote when I applied to CalArts, but at the time I saw myself as a theater technician, not an artist.

 

My motivation is still to make my voice heard, to be loud and queer and change the status quo. But this manifesto is different because I'm an artist now, and I no longer feel the need to box myself in to mediums and practices I know I'm good at.
