BRIDGE 2/BRIDGE 3: Proposal & Further, Deeper

BRIDGE 2: Proposal

1st Statement/Proposal of Zine/Publication:

Invasion of Privacy

 Arly, Jillian, Ingrid

As we were looking over the objects in our boxes, we noticed that we shared a theme of nostalgia and “old-school” items that newer generations today may not have experienced. Therefore, being inspired by our childhoods, we decided to make a zine exploring the difference between our generation, the ones before us and after ours. We were all born in the year 2000, making us millennials caught in between two eras.  Our zine will be mimicking styles from the late 90s and the early 2000s. In addition, we want to include some handwritten elements such as scanned images and journal entries to create a personal diary aesthetic. We will be showcasing our selective objects, artworks, and interests through interviews which each of us as the interviewee/artist. The interview questions will be focused on our childhood memories, or passions and interests and how pop culture has played an important part in our creative lives. Additionally, to make the zine feel a little bit more like a childhood magazine, there will be quizzes and music playlists intermixed to make it feel more interactive and nostalgic to the reader. The zine will be printed in 7×9” size paper and the pages will be stapled or sewed together.

Interview Questions:

-Was/Is your childhood important to you? How has it influenced you as an artist? As a person in the world today?

-Who were you as a kid? What were your interests?

-Are you an introvert or an extrovert?

-Did you watch cartoons? Which was your favorite as a kid? Now?

-Who or what in pop culture inspired you to make art as a kid? And now as a young adult?

-What does making art do for you mentally? Emotionally?

-What is your favorite art form?

-What’s a physical piece or a memory you’ve kept with you from your childhood? Why have you held onto it?

Final Statement:

Gen Z

Arly, Jillian, Ingrid
As we were looking over the objects in our boxes, we noticed a shared theme of nostalgia and “old-school” items that newer generations today may not have the privilege to experience. Therefore, being inspired by our childhoods, we decided to make a zine exploring the difference between our generation, the ones before us and the ones after ours. We were all born in the year 2000, making us millennials caught in between two eras.

Our zine will be mimicking styles from the late 90s and the early 2000s. Thus, we included elements like glitter, bright colored patterns, and stickers. In addition, we wanted to include some handwritten elements such as scanned images and journal entries to create a personal, diary aesthetic. We will be showcasing our selective objects, artworks, and interests through interviews as each of us as the interviewee/artist. The interview questions will be focused on our childhood memories, passions and interests, and how pop culture has played an important part in our creative lives. In addition, there are pages with illustrations of our chosen objects and descriptions of why we choose to spotlight each one. To make the zine feel a little bit more like a childhood magazine, there are quizzes and a music playlist from the 2000s era intermixed to make it feel more interactive and nostalgic to the reader. The zine is printed on 7×9” size matt paper and bound with staples.
