親水 HYDROPHILIC

ZINE / BOOK DESIGN

Hydrophilic is a zine created based on the idea of “water” and “fragments of memories”.
I designed 8 fragments from my memories that involve water. For each fragment, I created a layout combining an open dialogue between some original texts and abstract images. Ther are also 8 sheets of content cards printed on clear acetate to suggest the flow of water. Since the whole zine is about fragments, none of the pages are attached together. Readers can rearrange the sequence and play with overlaying the transparent material on top of other contents. Humans are born from water. We grow with the water inside ourselves, and finally dissolve into one beautiful, pure beginning.
In memory of the ceaseless flow of water impression.
