Notes on Design
PARIS, April 7—I try to see how an image can be available to anybody. I don’t affiliate with any brand or company or government; my work is financed by the sales of original artworks. So whenever I have the opportunity to make my images available online and in social media or in magazines, I take it. When I saw Zoetrope: All-Story, I said, OK, maybe I can make an edition that’s cool and that people can turn into posters and keep the images. It’s a way to have a magazine not just be on a shelf but live on a wall.
When you open the magazine, you’ll see different sections of an image. The design is actually similar to how I paste my black-and-white images in my projects: within each image, there are sections, smaller images, which come together to create a larger image. So the reader can take the different sheets of paper and combine them, like a puzzle, to make a big image and hang it on a wall.
