Her work is frequently punctuated by the illusion of weightlessness, where stacked objects like logs, fences, and doorways appear to be suspended in mid-air, reinforcing their temporary nature as if the installation is beginning to dissolve before your very eyes. One of her more recent sculptures, Schleudersitz is an enormous slingshot made from a common park bench, and you can get a great idea of what it might be like to sit inside it with this interactive 360 degree view. What you see here only begins to sratch the surface of Konrad’s work. You can see much more on her website. All imagery courtesy the artist.

The girl power zines to read this month The latest instalment of a new zine series, each month we ask an influential member of the zine community for their picks of the best publications on the self-publishing scene, this month being the turn of Sister Magazine's editor in chief Beccy Hill. I created Sister when I was in my third year of university – it earned me the worst grade I ever received in my time there. I was completely crushed because I felt like my tutor was criticising me as a person, I’d poured so much of ‘me’ into it. I still remember the comments he wrote, one of which was “no girl would ever buy this magazine.” However, in 2012, the summer of my graduation, it got picked up by the Tate Modern bookshop due to another freelance piece I was working on.
