A self-published mini-magazine commenting on the two texts; “Making: Knowing From The Inside” by Tim Ingold and “Design Away: Unmaking Things” by Cameron Tonkinwise.
Submission Format: Digital & Physical
Brief: Create a Zine to demonstrate comprehension of both assigned readings through the dissemination of key complimentary or contrasting information found within the texts. Must have 5 points of information (minimum) including a minimum of 2x visual pieces and 2x written pieces. The impact of the Zine must also be tracked.

Process and Development
I started this project by comparing the two readings to find similarities or contrasting positions. I also explored different types of zine constructions (ways to fold them). Once I had decided on the idea of the zine having instructions on how to fold into another object, I looked for different ideas online of origami examples. The glasses idea fit best with what I was trying to convey. I tried a variety of different styles and settled on the one that would give me the best surface area for adding visuals. I folded and unfolded test sheets to explore where to put the visual elements on the zine so they worked both folded and unfolded.
