For my zine, i decided on the theme of Metamorphosis,
with the butterfly as my motif.
I wanted to capture the idea of Mental Metamorphosis with
my zine, for the zine to transform and change as the viewer read it.
I planned my zine as an experience rather than just a simple
publication, to allow the viewer to feel. For that, i decided to split my zine into
2 parts, a white part that serves as the core, and a black part
that serves as the cocoon.
I did some research into brain functions, Xrays and MRI Scans, as well as searching
for words that ended in -sis, to make my zine more consistent and thematic.
