Concrete Flux: Issue III Escapism

Production of the bilingual Chinese and English magazine.
(October 2014)
Berlin and Beijing

“After the dream they set out in search of that city; they never found it, but they found one another; they decided to build a city like the one in the dream.” Invisible Cities, Italo Calvino

The impetus for this issue was born out one of those conversations that take place in the city – during one of those moments where amidst the constant cacophony of the city, we find an other with whom we can share a moment of imagined quiet, and in the imagined quiet, allow errant thoughts to be formed into words and carelessly uttered.

Design in collaboration with Solveig Suess.
