The Unpleasant Calm

November 2021
Thermal bound book.

‘The Unpleasant Calm’ is a zine exploring the period of boredom that
proceeds creativity, wether on an individual, or societal scale.

Using ten quotes from artists and thinkers throughout history paired with
artworks, historical photographs and contemporary references, this zine
invites the audience to compare modern and historical ideas of boredom,
and how people of different social classes and positions of power are
affected by it.

It features thermal bound pages printed french fold on red stock and a
screen-printed varnish hard cover.
