Ob.scene, no. 4

Ob.scene is a performing arts journal focused on the “things out of the stage.” The blank front cover is continued from the first issue as a unifying element. Ob.scene no. 4 was conceived with the theme of “walking in the city.” The issue is solely composed of quotes from other sources. From Benjamin to K-pop songs, from Yi Sang to a Naver webtoon, the fragments of the borrowed texts and images pass by, intermingle, and clash with one another – just like pedestrians in the city.

The elements on each spread are randomly rotated, providing an experience similar to walking with a compass (or a smartphone map application). The front cover flap opens to reveal a map of Montevideo, Uruguay: the closest city to the direct opposite of Seoul on the globe.
