The course will take an energetic and ambitious approach to the subject of artists' books, publications and bookworks. Students will conduct research and create models in class and then respond with works of their own that draw connections to these structures. Students will develop a greater understanding for the relationship between content and book formats and designing a publication to more effectively convey the information it holds. This course is open to both beginning and experienced students. Be prepared to work quickly but also to delve deeply into the materials and practices of making bookworks. Class will meet Wednesday from 1-4:50 for research and making. This will be followed by a 2 hour evening lab on Wednesday from 6-8 for presentations of response work.
You must be able to attend both class and lab.
