Issue Nº4 Windowscrapers

Issue Nº4 Windowscrapers


Windowscrapers probes the three fundamental functions of a pane of glass: transparency, refractivity, and reflectivity. In turn, it indulges prying eyes, projective portals, and mirrored surfaces to explore voyeuristic people-watching, alternate realties, and strategic exposure. Its stories inhabit moments where public spectacle intermingles with the humdrum of private routine. By peering through physical apertures and symbolic frames, Windowscrapers seeks to explore a continuum of human encounters, from the sinister to the serendipitous. Akin to the issues of SOILED before it, Windowscrapers believes that the printed page can transcend the bookshelf—that print media can be a tool to engage with the physical environment, according to architectural and fenestrated coordinates.
