Staple Magazine Issue 01

by Staple


The pilot issue is themed Dizziness of Youth, whereby the notion of “arriving to an age” or the awkward manoeuvre between childhood to adulthood is the interest of our topic. Youth as an experience is marked by its contradictions and volatility; a period of not one but multiple transitions of different magnitudes.

The ideas built around Youth have always been mystifying. Perhaps it is this precise dizziness, feeling of light-headedness, which youth grants us that attracts us to contemplate about it.
