Zines #0-5 in my continuing series about explorations in Canada and northern turtle island. Each zine is printed, hand-bound with linen thread, and hand stamped by me.

 

Contents include my research and observations, including:

- sketches and personal diary entry of my exploration

- my colour photography photos and archival photos

- my personal relationships to each place

- social histories of each place

- critical reflections on my observations

- fiction/short stories

 

I also include a blank page in each, for you to write or draw your own thoughts in.

 

Set of 6 zines includes:

 

#0 - Queens Wharf Lighthouse, Toronto

#1 - Woodbine Beach, Toronto

#2 - Tommy Thompson Park, Toronto

#3 - High Park Zoo, Toronto

#4 - Seawall, Vancouver

#5 - Woodbine Racetrack, Etobicoke



Each zine has 16 pages, 4 sheets + colour cover. Some topics I cover through the set include:

 

- human/animal histories

- urban/rural divide

- spirituality

- indigenous solidarity

- local private development

- urban housing crisis

- human curated nature and human impacts

- human/animal/environment collaborative survival

- urban exploration and the memories of lands

- utopian futures

 

I am an anthropologist and media scholar with a bachelors from the University of Toronto. I use my own experience and observations from visiting each place, and I apply ideas and theories from people from all walks of life to consider the history and future of each place I visit. My hope with this ongoing project is to make interesting, easy to read historical accounts of our evolving world through personal experience - and inspire others to consider doing the same.
