Printing Code is a generative zine made amid the Stay At Home orders of COVID-19 back in March of 2020. I wanted to encapsulate the repetition and mood of the quarantine life, and the universal feeling this pandemic created. The zine was made with HTML/CSS/P5JS, printed and bound.
This book, TINY, is a commentary on the ways in which people live. This includes but is not
limited to, the location, size, function, and possession of homes. How is home defined by someone living alone? How might it be defined from a community of hundreds? It is important to unpack different perspectives of the meaning of home, and living in the world. This book is an exploration
and research of small, unconventional living spaces from a number of different perspectives. The structure of this text is broken down into four different editorials around tiny living. This is a piece that grew into an expansive portrait of the way people live and what defines a home. The content of each chapter is broken into subsections that demonstrate a certain perspective, wether it be research, developing an image catalog, interviewing an expert, or writing a unique review. This project is an integration of visual and textual information.
Kill Captcha takes a critical look at what elements makeup CAPTCHA, analyzing the meaning behind it, and the intersection of surveillance and identity that it accompanies. What does it mean to prove you're human? Our computers and phones are extremely intelligent information systems, yet we constantly have to prove to ourselves who we are, often simplified down to the click of a button.
This zine was made in conjuncture with the 3M project, which consists of breaking the conventional use of software tools in order to make something new. I used the software Artbreeder as a tool for protecting protestors (or passersby in general) from surveillance. The zine itself looks at the imagery and possible outcomes of using the tool, as well as an emphasis on the importance of hiding your identity in instances of protest.
