Swiss photographer and editor JULIEN GREMAUD recently sent over a copy of the second issue of his zine Micronaut. Inside are twenty unbound newsprint pages featuring pictures by eleven contributors. These images, which almost always stretch across a double page spread, just wait to be unfolded, turned over and reassembled.
Working within this simple structural guideline, artists were free to develop the concept, which are part portable exhibition, part artist’s book. From the inventive and abstract to the peculiarly confrontational, the collection gives a substantial and exciting interactivity between the viewer, the works and the publication.
To show my appreciation, WFW are going to be giving away two zines. Just drop me a line to wefindwildness(at)gmail.com with Micronaut in the subject line ! On Monday afternoon (October 26, 2012) two lucky winners will be selected at random and notified by email!
