The book form can integrate a wide range of media and materials, bringing together image and text, structure and sequence in one moveable, touchable object. Through a series of projects incorporating each artist's interests and chosen media we will work inventively with a variety of traditional and experimental book forms. We will refine our skills as we investigate topics such as: the uses of words and images, conceptual layering, the importance of memory, the connections between form and content, and the influence of time and change.
Bookworks 2 students complete two to three in-depth, individual projects and will receive advanced instruction tailored to individual needs. Open to students from any discipline who have taken Bookworks 1. May be repeated for additional credit.
