Alphabook 10

2015, 5 x 12 in., 56 pp.
Laser cut duplex papers hand bound with long stitch through slotted cover; housed in archival phase box. Edition of 14

One of a series of alphabet books that rely on physical action (cutting paper and turning pages) to create letterforms unique to the book form. The fore edge of each page is cut into geometric forms from black, white and cream toned duplex stock (two sheets of different colored paper laminated together). The conception of the series and design of inkless alphabets was inspired by the limitations and possibilities of material and process.

Produced during a residency at The Institute for Electronic Arts, a high technology research studio facility within the School of Art and Design, NYSCC, Alfred University, New York, committed to developing cultural interactions spurred by technological experimentation and artistic investigations.
