“The visual idiosyncrasies of the zine are a direct translation of the structure
of ‘Telex Moon.’ I wanted to isolate Bautista’s 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.”
