“I have been obsessed with my small collection of unopened, Reader’s Digest
magazines from 2010/2011 and have been wanting to use them on a project.
Reader’s Digest is so mundane and gives the reader flu-like symptoms which
also makes it unique. There must be a deeper / alternate meaning to the text.”
