Ziplock Terrarium II

The art school I’m a student at has a “Crit Week” every year, basically they get a bunch of industry folk (curators, dealers, professional artists, etc) to come in and provide outside feedback on student work. I was commissioned to design/make the thank you cards the guests were to receive.

I decided upon a compounding of a prototype zine I never ended up producing in multiples and my ziplock terrarium business card.

Originally I was to have the design letter pressed, but a miscommunication caused me to go with photocopies instead, not such a big problem to me being an enthusiastic zinester.

Only 18 were made, a total of 4 different types of moss and lichen were used in various combination, printed matter on coloured paper has been affixed to a harder ivory card, all else pretty observable without explanation, note that the spine is backwards...
