    ‘Dead but Writhing with Life” is a study comparing the decadence movement to postmodernism and focuses on the pitfalls of civilizations that are on the brink of ruin. Using the ‘Fin de Siecle’ period as a foundation, it delves into the ideas surrounding cultural decline within a progressive and technologically advanced society. This is accomplished by the creation of five post-apocolyptic zines that are meant to encompass each “symptom” of a decaying society and serve as a reference to and critique of one of the most culturally ambiguous periods of the last century.
