Copy Paste

It can be said that copy|paste has become a ubiquitous act, a series of keyboard commands, which today has become synonymous with the computer. This issue explores the implications of these three keys on our lives – what are these commands other than an efficient way to duplicate information?

The process by which this zine has materialised was directly influenced by its theme – adopting a photocopier in lieu of the computer. The laborious method of physically copying|cutting|pasting (repeat [endlessly]) has brought forth how these simple keys are now embedded in our toolkits for making.

To the contributors: thank you for your enthusiasm towards the theme, without you i’d have nothing to photocopy.

Welcome to copy|paste
