Aznbf is a book in service of dialogue and the result of conversations with nine people about the relationship between asianness and masculinity.

Conversations were unstructured and often spanned a range of topics including upbringing, love/sexuality/relationships, creative work, family, politics, and belonging. Audio from these conversations was transcribed and loosely categorized, thereby divorcing content from speaker. Lines of text were then reordered to form composite poems which attempt to articulate a collective voice.

Additionally, interviewees were given a single-use 35mm camera to represent their world through film. Aznbf was risograph printed as an edition of #_150.

This project was supported by the Regional Arts and Culture Council.
