ACADEMY OF ART UNIVERSITY
SPRING SHOW 2008
The first step of the project was to randomly select a word from the dictionary and understand the meaning of it. The Second part, people brought in images for one to be selected at random. Then the final step was to create a book using the word and the image in combination. With all the constraints that the project had, we were allowed to use any structure as long as the word showed up at least once and contained the given image.
The word “doorbell” was randomly selected and an image of a spider was given. Something poetic seemed appropriate and after much research, I came across a solution by editing a poem found online the integrated the word doorbell. The use of frayed red string gave a web-like feel, stringing the pages together like a spider would. It gave a sense that the spider was crawling through the pages as you flipped through the book.
