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. Students are encouraged to take Advanced Bookworks.
