Gazing



Gazing, into transition, aims to be a place fo discussing gender, identity, the body and representation as something that is in constant transition. Through art, words, photographs and all things visual.



A huge thank you to everyone trusting me
with their words, photographs, illustrations, art and being a part of Gazing, it wouldn’t exist without you!
I’m eternally grateful. And happy flipping
through Gazing!
I think that creating a wider less ”sexed” gaze when seeing and integrating with people is an important step to understanding and fighting for equality. A step away from the male gaze and all that it entails. It’s such a freeing thing when you realize that you're more complex than just your sex -  your identity, sexuality or representation is a thing you can explore and decide for yourself, regardless of that.
        When you think about how much of your personality, do’s and don’ts are just assigned to you in a package with your sex - it’s honestly pretty darn resonable for people to be like - hey this isn’t me? Finding yourself in that can be an amazing but hard transition, especially in a patriarchy. Gazing aims to widen your understanding and perception of gender and gender identity and all that comes with it and all that doesn’t. 
My interest in graphic design started with a love for magazines and art. So since the beginning of Forsbergs I kind of knew that I wanted to create something that had with printing to do. The process has been a rocky one. A round of applause for everyone in the publishing business, I don’t know how you manage your physical and mental health!
        I’ve been reading and looking at material until my eyes started to cross, going back and forth with design decisions and structures, engaged more with my indesign document than other human beings, trying to get in contact with people - some with luck, and some without. I chose to let the layout and the positions of words and pictures vary and change its place and size as a reflection of transition. It doesn’t have a fixed place nor movement.
I also didn’t want the design to take over the content and importance of the words or photographs, because I’m just the messenger.
        The typography of the wordmark logo Gazing represents a stretch out of the norm. A need to expand, or break if you will, the framework and gaze for which bodies, gender and gender identity is under or in.
