Books & Paper Summer Session 3
Session 3: June 19–July 1
The Mechanical Image: Process, Modularity, and the Distributed Form
Risograph duplicators, copiers, scanners, and desktop printers will be primary tools for exploring how artistic production functions differently in the context of multiplicity. We’ll take historical inspiration from twentieth-century graphic design, Dada, Fluxus, minimalism, and process art, while creating photo-mechanical layouts for use with scanners and copy camera techniques. Exercises will encourage formal transformation via reproductive processes, exploring the conceptual potential of modularity, iteration, and distributed form. Finished projects may include Risograph booklets, flat stock, collages, temporary installations, or other forms. All levels. Books studio.
