The poetry zine, Heavy Water: a poem for Chernobyl, stems from the Departures process within the Arrivals and Departures project.
By creating varied imagery stemming from the Departures process, I selected an image I found most interesting and visually stimulating. I felt the chosen image evoked the works of poet Mario Petrucci. Petrucci's works Heavy Water: a poem for Chernobyl, explores the terrible events of the Chernobyl Disaster.
The zine uses carefully selected excerpts of Petrucci's poem to create a timeline of the event and appropriately responds to the works through use of texture and layout.
