IMMINENT is the little zine I started in March 2020 as a response to concerns about nature and the environment. Numerous excellent artists and writers have contributed to date, and their generosity has kept my creative brain moving, for which I am most grateful.
Making the zine has become a process of reciprocity. Artists and poets have sent me their words and images, and gradually, as I sift through these wonderful gifts, themes and threads have emerged. I take these threads and respond to them with my own words and images, and eventually curate it all together into a small collection of creativity, woven together and presented in one dominant colour (the colour also suggested by the content) in a riso printed booklet.
I have loved making it, and loved the new connections it has enabled me to make with other artists and writers, many of whom I have only corresponded with and never met. I hope I will meet them all one day.
I would love you to have the zine, and so I have made it as affordable as possible. The cost only covers the printing and distribution, the rest is made by generous creativity and the love of sharing. I hope you enjoy it.
Red - Issue 1 - the material world
Blue - Issue 2 - ice and water
Green - Issue 3 - the other-than-human
Orange - Issue 4 - landscape and time
I am also working on a collaboration with Robert Hogg from Canada, inspired by a poem he sent me. The zine is being created as a result of our correspondence between Canada and England, and will span time and distance, memory, imagining and journeys.
