ActivitiesFlawless Hackathon: Create your own tech zineApr 2019Apr 2019Workshop leaderNew York, NYCo-lead a workshop at Flawless Hackathon 2019 with Taeyoon Choi. We helped workshop participants create their own zines about software or tech culture. The New York Tech Zine Fair team introduced the ways in which visual artists, writers, engineers, technologists, illustrators, and designers use the space of zines and similar DIY creations to examine what we consider to be “technology” and offered a fresh perspective on digital culture. Participants learned about storytelling with zines and simple binding techniques.http://flawlesshacks.com/#workshop-zine
