GLASSDEMIC-19: a zine for people wearing glasses during the pandemic

It's a vehicle to share my experiences of trying to make human connections whilst coming up against mask-induced-fogging and screen-induced Zoom glare... ALL VIA THE MEDIUM OF PAPER MARBLING.

To make lenses inspired by the screen reflections on my glasses when I use Zoom I use Suminagashi - originally from Japan, where ink is floated on water. To make lenses inspired by the way my glasses fog up when I wear I mask I use Ebru - originally from Turkey, where paint is floated on water thickened with powdered sea weed.

And below are snaps of the zine being sold alongside “designer glasses” and “custom lenses” that can be marbled onto by zine-buyers using the techniques featured in the zine.
