"I made this zine in 2016 after learning from Youtube how to modify my clock to make it spin backwards. The zine is a sort of failed instruction manual that is very unclear because it has bad photographs and no text.I had to serve 22 months of compulsory military service between 2015 and 2016. I could only describe this time as being a dull and meaningless counting of endless numbered days."
