Artist Talk J.R. Carpenter Notes

She makes zines!!!

Collage aesthetic: Photocopies of drawings, glue, scissors.

Print does something the digital can’t and the digital medium does something print can’t.

She writes non-linear stories.

A publication as a beginning – ‘oh I should do something with it.’

She makes a zine version of everything she does! The zines ‘as these hybrids of the literary text and the performance.’ When it doubt I make a zine.

Her poetry book is called ‘An Ocean of Static’.

Working between different disciplines is good because they have different time scales.

Take two massive things and smash them together and see what turns out.

Another reason to make a zine: to send to publishers!

As an artist to survive you write proposals for a living.
