Punk Rockers on Creative Survival and the Survival of Creativity
Self-Published Book (Unlimited Edition)
Performance Documentation in Trinity Bellwoods Park Toronto
An important part of PRCSSC was its method of distribution. A plain, photocopied edition of PRCSSC was distributed for free-- by myself and by interviewees-- in public places such as bookstores, coffee shops, parks, subways, schools and libraries, to be read by people outside of the punk community. While encouraging dialogue among punk rockers, the zine also served as a way of challenging and broadening the general publics definition of creative practice while encouraging them to explore creative acts in the same spirit.
The method employed to distribute PRCSSC is a tongue-in-cheek nod to religious tracts such as The Watchtower and the cartoon gospel tracts of Jack Chick. The cover of the limited letterpress edition of PRCSSC also references the minimalist design of many philosophy texts, as well as the King James Bible.
