In a world where authenticity, realness, and truth is becoming scarce, it is important to gain perspective and become more acquainted with reality. We cannot deny that the rapid development of society and immense technological advancements have made it increasingly difficult to navigate the human experience. An exponential incline of depression, existential dread, and unproductive nihilism is only the tip of the unchecked-yet-naturally-human-instinct iceberg. Humans do what feels good or right, but those choices are often not what we need. The brain plays tricks on us to conserve energy and avoid risks to stay alive. Therefore it's easy to do nothing and play it safe. So, the few tenacious and persevering minds that rise above and face challenges in life are granted the graces and rewards that it has to offer. This is where questioning reality plays a crucial role in expanding our minds. The Foldagraphic start-up is a champion of scrutinizing the prevailing ideas and perspectives. Questioning our world gives an individual more power over themselves and their life. Once this happens, we can be the change we want to see, and by working on ourselves can we grow as the human race.
Long story short, Foldagraphic stands as the idea of growing your self by constantly shifting perspective and intends to transpose this into each creation.
Foldagrahic’s very first interactive Zine is a dynamic and interactive 2D product designed to ignite curiosity, inspiration, and imagination. The genuine and tangible experience of this Foldagraphic product grows creative thinking; a paramount skill for survival in the world of today. Printing out, folding, cutting, and coloring this zine is a creative exercise and bolsters this skill.
The Foldagraphic Zine Issue #1 is a single page of 8.5x11 inches folded into 1/8ths and cut 5.5inches wide in the center. When folded together, the 6-page zine beholds a skeleton warning that something scary is inside this book and begs the viewer to not turn the page. On the final page in the lower right corner is a cut-out that invites the viewer to open the paper where a larger, more realistic, and detailed skull is presented. From here, the last fold-out splits the skull and reveals the center portion that is intended as the main message, greeting, puzzle, joke, cash, etc. When folding the zine back up, the back cover displays 4 fields addressing the recipient: TO, FROM, LOVE, and PS. The website's skull QR code and Foldagraphic logo also accompany the back cover. This product was intended to be printed at home to be accessible to anyone who has a printer and paper.
