ROOMS is an independent art magazine located in Shoreditch, London. Within the 6 months I worked for ROOMS I mainly specialised in interviews with upcoming creative talent, and opinion pieces; experimenting with different formats and keeping the content interesting and innovative.
"Our society is in need for individuals like the ones above, so we can leave all those misconceptions about sex and sexuality behind us and work towards that one moment where we can finally all openly accept that women do masturbate, there is no one in this world that is 100 percent straight, and sex is as opposed to what you have been watching in your bedroom with the door locked, more raw and real than anything you have ever been confronted with on the internet, rap song video clips or perfume ads."
"There is this exciting paradoxical element within art. On the one hand we pretend that art should be something that belongs to humanity
