Junk Jet is a zine-jet, a col­lab­or­at­ive format set up to dis­cuss spec­u­lat­ive works on top­ics of archi­tec­tures, media, aes­thet­ics, and on elec­tron­ics. It is an irreg­u­lar lö-fi paper pub­lic­a­tion (includ­ing irra­tion­al spe­cial gifts) on a non-cöm­mer­cial scale edited by Asli Serbest and Mona Mahall and pub­lished by their own igmade.edition.
Junk Jet­is inter­ested in counter works (and counter counter works) of counter aes­thet­ics, tun­nel­ling prac­tices that show lack of any irony or fic­tion. It is about wild forms and found objects, about weird the­or­ies and (small) nar­rat­ives, anti-fash­ions and non-styles, about explor­ing do-it-your­self works, acci­dent­al out­comes, devi­ant and nor­mal aes­thet­ic forms that res­ult from jammed com­mon prac­tices, mis­used media, and sub­ver­ted cus­tom­ary tools. It is about cul­tiv­at­ing an anti heart by “intro­du­cing noise to sig­nal”. Where­as n°1 °.° was focused on the top­ic of music, or bet­ter: noise, n°2 °.° is espe­cially into archi­tec­tur­al and spa­tial works. The n°3 °.° flux us! flux you! issue focused on tem­por­ary types, on stable hap­pen­ings and unstable thoughts: boo­gie build­ings, rolling rocks, fly­ing archi­tec­tures, pro­vis­ory pyr­am­ids, lif­ted cel­lars and dug in land­marks, cur­tains, mobiles, house boats, bubbles, zep­pelins, fly­ing sau­cers… ”
