Lorem Ipsum Zine

Publication | 2017-18


A zine that uses Lorem Ipsum as a symbol to explore the freedom of language and texts.


Inspired by the rioted spirit of Dada and Ulises Carrión's "New Art of Making Books," this experimental publication is an exploration of text as an entity with a consciousness and seeking freedom among the constraints of language and design. It is a questioning of the hierarchical power of content versus the vehicle that carries it; questioning the mental and cultural constructs of what is important; an act of leveling what is usually considered meaningless or even nonexistent to the importance of “the content.”

Can language be totally dissociated with its meanings and intentions? Can texts be free? And are we ultimately only as free as our own creations?
