Politically-Manipulated Social Construction Zine
Media-Manipulated Social Construction Zine
Publication based on the word construct, which is able to function as both a poster and a zine. Comprised of two, double-sided zines, the user can flip between the two different sides of the zine, each side containing different visual information. If the zines are unfolded, they can be transformed into four different dynamic, three-dimensional posters, each which contain a different commentary on social constructions. On the top side of each zine there is an “ideal” social construction, while on the bottom there is the opposing, chaotic, visual representation of what happens when the construction above it fails.
In the first zine the user constructs a social environment which is run by an oppressive political system, while in the second zine the social environment is run by media-manipulation. As a whole, the publication creates a setting where the user is able to physically construct visual representations of two harrowing social constructions, ultimately forcing him/her to question the social constructions we have created for ourselves and how effective they really are.
