Movement and zines

From Sept. 2017-Sept. 2019, DK traveled to cities of Southeast Asia and Northern Europe to look for new people we did not know yet and invite them to co-create with us to make ‘zines.’

‘Trust the process’

We wanted to connect with people we did not know. We also wanted to interconnect those who didn’t know each other.  In conversational, low-key dialogue-spaces. If things went well, we might make an issue together of our mini-mag, S P A C E. That was the idea. Some of the time it worked, kind of. Most of the time it was learning, by doing, much in the way every project has been for us at DK. We are all about ‘learning by doing’ and the experiential portions of all our client works, too. It’s how it is for us: it’s our life.

Evolutions

Well, it went all kinds of directions from the original intent, but there’s a lot more to report behind-the-scenes if we have a chance to sit down and have a long chat, in person. Because the emergent story was always the best kind. Not preplanned, just let to happen.

If and when.

It made itself.

Not always, but sometimes.

And that is how we did the things in S P A C E, to make these zines in our online store.
