Wake is a collection of pieces I’ve made over the last year, in light of a big break up. This zine explores themes of heartbreak, time and its cyclical nature, shifting perspectives (read: I realized my ex was shittier than I thought), and coming back to oneself in the midst of all these thoughts and feelings. Wake was born out of the desire to honour this messy journey, to intentionally allow space for even the most vulnerable of feelings to be witnessed, and as a nod toward the transience of it all. This project combines analog and digital production, with pieces composed in marker as well as composition through digital editing and collaging.
Parts of Anne Alajar’s philosophy zine Life was featured in The Continuist's zine issue Time to Regroup! Phenomenology is the point of interest here, which Alajar defines as a “philosophical approach that concentrates on the mind and the objects of direct experience.” Read up on how philosophers like René Descartes, Edmund Husserl, Martin Heidegger, and Michel Henry contributed to phenomenology through a student’s musings!
