Archizines Reading Room by Design With Company

“This installation at ‘This Public Works Gallery’ is the Chicago leg of the traveling exhibition Archizines. The exhibition features 101 self-published architecture zines from all over the world, curated by Elias Redstone. In the gallery space, a grid pattern of clamps line the walls with hundreds of potential sites for zine display. Visitors pluck a zine from one location and return it to another, generating a constantly changing scenery of zines, or zinery. The human powered motion of the zinery can be surveyed from the moveable stepped platforms that share the space. These four-legged OSB objects look to be part furniture, part landform, part building and part animal. Most importantly however, they serve as platforms for people to lounge while they read. Like pedestals without permanent sculptures on top, they are mini-monuments for people, placing visitors on display as part of the exhibition.
