Alien Energy Fanzine

This handcrafted booklet was composed during a workshop by the Alien Energy research team and many of those we are working with in the marine energy industry.

A fanzine (fan magazine) is often an intervention into existing, dominant understandings; it takes existing material and reformats and repurposes it. We used this paper-based format to explore and experiment with how Science Studies and anthropology approaches could form a dialogue with the marine energy industry and its imaginaries – what might move back and forth?
