“The visual idiosyncrasies of the zine are a direct translation of the structure of ‘Telex Moon.’ I wanted to isolate his words with space or distance. I was also thinking about how to bring forth this image of a ‘house of memory’ which precisely describes “Telex Moon.” It resulted in utilizing cubic voids or punctures that act as an initial or final punctuation before or after you read the quatrains. The cubic voids serve as a relief or support, a space for the reader to contemplate the memory inscribed in each quatrain.”
