Mayday (2021)

Hand-made book.
Ink and toner on illustration paper. A5 sized.

Released as part of Gap Year Book Club.

Made in the 24 hours of May 1, 2021, the production of Mayday is the thesis of the work; how commercial ideas of deadlines mimic extreme situations of life or death, how corporate language often appropriates metaphors of war for messaging. How 'workers' become 'troops.'

A series of collected headlines, images, and other personal works made digitally printed on top of a sketchbook filled with old love letters, the book also literally stacks one type of tension atop another, as the internet would do, in an examination of how unaffiliated subjects get crossed in the age of interconnected information.
