Minutes after Midnight

2-color RISO book
8in x 4in

Happened upon the term “minutes before midnight”, which The Bulletin of Atomic Scientist (science nonprofit) use to determine how close humanity is to destruction at the hands of nuclear weapons and global warming. Imaging a scenario in which this destruction has taken place, I recontextualized my photos and texts that had taken place after midnight to live in this post-apocalyptic world.

During the pandemic to pass time I would make extremely graphic illustrations while calling various friends. I returned to this, again referencing photos from my camera roll to inspire shapes, forms, ideas. Thinking of this as both visual translation, I added an element of verbal translation by conducting a game of telephone with peers.
