That’s all I have to report, really, because I have spring break brain.
I’ve been busy printing, binding, and scanning books.
My teacher Don Crow has been talking a lot about looking, really looking, and I’ve been applying this to books: how we look at and read books, how the structure and material and presentation of the physical book affects how we approach it, and how context affects reading and looking.
This page is my favorite page, “to hug a large man for a long time” in teeny tiny type.
I’m making more (embarrassing) images to make more books.
I’m interested in the idea of pairing books of imagery with textual audio that don’t overtly “match” one another, yet are deeply related in some way. We’ll see what happens?
I re-photographed the Knots books today (and did 10000000 other things).
Cheers to fruitful days, and the opportunity for a do-over.
Update: Redone photographs are up on my website. Check it out!!! And upon further thought, I think there are more opportunities for redo than we probably realize.
Check it out, my first real digiphoto assignment! Using books from the book castle, of course.
