Experimental Magazine at the Intersection of Science of Society
Each issue of Science Notes explores one topic via journalistic formats, literary texts and artistic contributions. The design changes completely with every new topic.
When they started to make the women-issue they were caught in a trap: There where so many do’s and don’ts out there, that they had a hard time to envision what their approach to this largely contested topic could be. In the end, they found, that first and foremost they had an awful lot of questions: how distinct is sex? How big is the clitoris? Is there such thing as the female brain? And why are there so many female robots? They decided to make a magazine that asks questions—and one question in particular: What’s woman?
Given that the answer must remain open and that there seem to be not so many clear cut distinctions and mostly smooth and blurry transitions, art director Sandra Teschow asked the incredible artist Hélène Baum-Owoyele to contribute to the magazine. Hélène is an afropean illustrator and graphic designer. They thought that her signature watercolor illustrations are the perfect visual counterpoint for their questions about what’s woman.
