ZINE

Welcome to the ZINE Store

Each zine is designed, printed, saddle-stitched and trimmed in my studio by hand. I make these to share work and expand the ways it can function in different formats. These art booklets expand on the work through feature essays, installation views, peripheral information including the art. They also create a new format to organize the art into a precious tangible object that acts as an enjoyable book and an archive of works completed.

Purchase a zine by sending the total amount via paypal to seandinaz@gmail.com. Please add $6 per order for shipping. Make sure to email me directly at sean.deckert@me.com with your order details and your shipping address.


 

INVERSE UNIVERSE

1st Run, 2016

$15

4.5” x 6”

This hand-made saddle stitched photography book
contains thirty two full-color pages and eleven full spread photographs.
Special Edition cover available in small quantities.

Inverse Universe is a visual narrative composed in volumes of photographs weaving a story about civilization through the eyes of ecotourism. Tapping into the ontological vibes of New Mexico, the first volume explore relationships of time, space and shadows where Sci-Fi collides with Spirituality. Inspired by filmic elements and the transformative power of photography, light and shadow are manipulated in camera to exaggerate naturally occurring elements. 

This zine features White Sands, UFO’s, missile ranges, very large satellites, lava tubes, dinosaur graves, ancient bat caves and seemingly pristine environments.

 


Reflective Properties

1st Run, 2016

$25

5″ x 7″

This hand-made saddle stitched photography book
contains sixty four full-color pages, eight full spread photographs,
an essay by Grant Vetter, video still frames throughout and supporting illustrations.

While this small survey of Deckert’s video work focuses on a selection of pieces from 2011, the general development of his oeuvre is reflected in these video vignettes in any number of ways. As a meditation on transitory states and transformations in the environment, these documentary shorts act as a critical rejoinder to his photographic projects, making them an important contribution to his artistic program in their own right. But above all else, they have been brought together here for what they say about the present, and what kinds of insights they off er us into the larger spectrum of vision and visionary experiences.

-Grant Vetter, Director, Fine Art Complex 1101
