ENERGY: WHAT IS ENERGY

Zine Project
WHAT IS A ZINE
?
A zine is usually a non commercial, non professional publication, kind of
like a magazine but with a twist. The main difference between a magazine and a
zine is that zines are not out there to make a profit but, rather, to add other, often unheard voices into
the mix. Zines are usually made out of interest and passion and are often self-published by the
writer/artist/creator. Typically zines are made using collage techniques and are then photocopied
since these are means available to almost everyone. What I like best about zines is that they provide
a voice for all; outside of the mainstream, of alternative, from the underground, the margins of society.
THIS PROJECT:
We will be creating a zine, where
each page
represent some form of energy in our lives. We are going
to use the themes in
The Alchemist
to drive our thinking.
