Mass-observation

I was watching this cool show the other night on ABC that talked about this social research thing that started in 1937 called 'Mass-observation'. It was a private organization where untrained people went about being 'spies' and recording people's conversations, interactions and activities. They found out weird statistics like what is the average number of chips in a serving is (26 and 1/6) and it was a fantastic insight into the everyday, average mundanities of life in London at the time.

So I have started working on my next Zine, and with this in mind I'm going to make it a weird assortment of snippets of crude mundanities, as well as things I have written and drawn. Going to attempt to finish it before Uni speeds to an end in a little over a week. Time certainly does hurtle.
