Description

This course revolves around the idea of the Book As Interactive Object. The construction of the book will dictate the content. A book conventionally opens page by page in one direction. The book proposed for experimentation in this course will require that it may be seen horizontally, vertically, and from the vantage of 360 degree rotation; all simultaneously perceptually understandable.

Upon completion of the design process, the book will be printed at the department facilities, and then taken outside of the university to be professionally bound. Each student will be expected to produce a book of their own design, which fulfills the previously stated requirements. Proseminar 180 will meet twice a week.

Tuesdays are allocated for group meeting and discussion; Thursdays will be reserved for individually scheduled meetings with Professor Vasa and Sue Huang, T.A. for this course.
