Asian Is Not Oriental by Sherrie Thai. Based on subject of Asian/Asian-American stereotypes in mass media. Inspiration/title taken from poem "Asian is Not Oriental". Patterned plexiglass cover shows distorted view of the letter "Y" & suggests cultural distortion. Y, 1st letter of the word "Yellow", an adjective sometimes used to negatively describe Asians. Refers to Yellow Journalism & a time @ turn of the century when there was greater discrimination towards Asians. Coptic binding.
I really like the style of this magazine stand, i think its minimal looking but chic at the same time because of its transparency. I think that the stand will work well to display the magazine because it will really stand out.
