How I Learned to Read, 2013
6.5 x 5.5 x 1.5 in
Statement: When I was notified of the cards drawn for me I was initially stumped – the combination was so unlike what I would have chosen for myself. Then, as I sifted through my thrift store purchases and explored several ideas along the way, it all came together.
How I Learned to Read is part of the Ideation by Chance exhibition in which artists set out to make a book based on random assignments from a deck of options.
Here are the parameters set for this book:
Adjectives: personal, lyrical, ordinary, similar, scientific
Paper: transparent, translucent
Layout: random, unplanned
Structure: unbound/ boxed
Text: abstract, non-verbal, gibberish
