Adjacent Issue 10 ‘Ecoscope’

Website and zine design for Adjacent issue 10, a celebration on ITP communit and meditations on nature, humanity and technnology.


/ Theme 

Adjacent issue 10, Ecoscope, explores the fine line between nature and technology, and their intimate relationship with humanity. Each essay takes a close look at one very small piece of this everything-verse we are intimately wedged in, like a scope. The range in topics exhibits the breadth of this tripartite intersection: interspecies art-making, microbial archiving, snails, camouflage, keyboards, nesting, bugs, the notes app, and collective joy.

/ Three.js

The main visual of this issue is a bubble built in Three.js. It represents a lens, a perspective, a gaze at our core topic that is covered by a wide variety of interpretations.

The bubble’s movement is mapped to the scrolling activity of the user, so one’s perspective on the object changes as they scroll through the website.

/ Customized fonts for essays

To accomodate the everything-verse, we selected a dedicated font for each article, reflecting the nature of the essay. Upon user’s mouse hovering the title, the preview text appears as well as the designed title.

Issue 10: Printed zine
In celebration of issue 10, we made a community-centered zine, where we designed activties on the topic of nature, humanity and technology, and invited students and faculty to reflect upon.

Using the output from our events across 2 months, we turned them into a 36 page zine which is distributed during 2022 ITP/IMA Winter Show.
