Schizm magazine is a compilation of images and texts edited together by Emma Holmes, using the model of the zine as a vehicle to produce a publicly distributed collection of ideas with the most direct & affordable means available. The mission of Schizm magazine is to present a self published assortment of material, purposefully edited to emphasize ideas about representation through images and texts, giving prominence to the unrestrained & impromptu collecting of material.
In Issue Two, fifteen contributors were invited to submit material towards it’s production. The editor proposed as a working theme or recurring unifying element: TIME DOESN’T GIVE A SHIT, (Idealism, Legitimacy & Representation)
From images that imagine the ideal, to text book illustrations conveying information, the magazine compiles email correspondence, diagrams, photographs, drawings, texts etc, collecting, mixing and balancing these responses to ideas concerning time and our place in it.
