ART 3306 - Print Media: The Artist's Book and the Object Multiple

Description
This course examines the Artist's Book and the Object Multiple, which expand the definition of an edition by being 3-dimensional, tactile, and often collaborative or text-based. Students will have the option to produce hand-made objects of various forms (for example, Louise Bourgeois' sewn books), digitally-printed and bound artists' books (such as Amy Sillman's zines), or any combination of the two (or example, Kiki Smith's editioned porcelain sculptures) and have access to digital printers, CNC routers, and various other fabricating machines as well as traditional printing presses. The class will be divided into units focusing on traditional skills in bookmaking, with guest instruction from the Wells Book Arts Center; on mold-making and casting, with emphasis on 3-D fabricating capabilities; and finally on the natures of hand-made multiples versus their machine-made digital cousins.
