This zine, “Tapped,” explores the unconscious mind of a creative (me) through the creation of handmade visuals using the Surrealist technique of automatism. Automatism encourages the artist to express themself freely, without conscious thought. During the creation of this zine I used paint, tape, paper, ink, and found objects. I then digitally manipulated the visuals which are accompanied by Andre Breton’s 1924 Surrealist Manifesto.
