Quit Your Job and Eat Pizza Zine - Issue #5 Zine
Quit Your Job and Eat Pizza is a personal zine ("perzine") that captures a moment in time.
Issue #5 was written in August 2019. Contains the two short essays: "A Crying Baby on an Airplane" and "Hell is Other Moms." Includes drawings of my son from recent sketchbooks.
20 pages, quarter-letter sized.
ABOUT: Amy Burek is a scientist and artist living
in the San Francisco bay area.
My interests include how cells become organisms, how letters become words, and how cat pictures become memes.
During my time in the laboratory, I studied how organelles communicate within a cell, helped build plants that are more resistant to drought and insects, and measured the rate at which bacteria develop resistance to antibiotics.
As an artist, I am interested in exploring how technology has shaped the ways we communicate, interact with each other, and perceive ourselves. I find the divide between our virtual and physical selves fascinating and feel that the wackiest corners of the internet deserve documentation.
