I struggle with words and their use in this zine. And, yes, I see the irony of those “words” in the midst of writing and posting this today. I am generally not an enthusiastic blogger, which may be glaringly obvious to anyone checking in on this site. So the concept for the next zine issue, being about words and the context or lack there of, is an interesting one for me.
Part of the inspiration for this issue came from a local art exhibit where headlines and other newsprint from the New York Times were used to create haiku like layouts creating a totally different juxtaposition than originally intended.
I have a cache of photos that I thought I would be using in issue 6, but that all changed with this different concept and design. I will be starting from scratch this weekend seeking out a different set of images to go with these words.
No timetable yet for publication on this one, probably April some time.

I always enjoy reading your thoughts and observations. I feel like I can’t find my own these days! I like the idea of using found words and items. I’ve seen it done at a few exhibits, and I liked how it worked.
every word is a found word.
Wow, I just binged Severance. Incredible. I thought I was only getting the first episode, but maybe I accidentally signed up for the trial. I can’t wait for next week’s episode.
Yeah, Severance is awesome. Great cliffhanger in the last episode.
