Bang Bang Zine Vol.1: Playtime
2021 felt like we’re being caught in a time chamber, where our sense of time is distorted. The countless news reports on the infected, deceased, and natural or man-made disasters happening around the world has made us numb. Meanwhile, numerous families and friends are also going through their own share of quarrels or even separation.
With that being said, we are grateful to be fortunate enough to be able to regain the passion in zine making that has been suspended since the outbreak, and continue to explore its possibilities and whimsicalness amidst uncertainty.
In this first zine issue, the theme will revolve around “time”, with most of the ideas arising from our personal experiences as we move the drinking tea culture online where we chit chat with one another and share our daily thoughts and feelings. Amongst these conversations, we collected stories on personal relief, deep memories, imaginative stories, and interpreted them in a comical and illustrative way.
