THE BLINDSPOT ZINE




LONDON, AUTUMN 2014

A5, 12 Pgs.







The Blindspot is a publication about the limits of perception.
A forum of short narratives portrayed with a sense of duelity,
exploring topics such as Illusion or Mental Health.

It is designed using two distinct layers of content throughout it, distinguishing factual [printed in red] from fictional data [printed in blue] by using affordable materials and optical illusion techniques to hide or rather highlight information.

Structered in a blog like layout, it is inspired and provoked at the same time by forms of censorship while it experiments on how both objective and subjective data can coexist on a page while adding meaningful layers of time and space.






































Everybody has that thing: they need to look like one way but they come out looking another way (...) We’ve been given these particularities and not content with that we’re given, We create a whole other set (...)
There’s a point between what you want people to know about you and what you can’t help people knowing about you (...) It’s impossible to get out of your skin into somebody else’s. And this is what all this is a little bit about: That somebody else’s tragedy is not the same as your own.


Dianne Arbus, 1972
