Artzine project

One of my favorite projects on my National Diploma Course was the artzine project. [unit 35, words and images] I ended up producing a standard artzine, folded from an A3 sheet.

Our pathway was fortunate enough to have Alex Higlett come in as a guest lecturer to explain the process and  applications of Artzines. My lecturer Georgina Hounsome helped me develop a printing technique comining relief print, photograms and digital media to produce the final outcomes shown below.

We were given several topics to choose from, I chose Boys and Girls, developing it into an exploration of the representation of sexuality. I used the lyrics from Blur's 'girls and boys' song to illustrate the complicated and confusing nature of peoples sexuality, which becomes harder to understand the closer you look into it.
