Book Arts

Seventh Annual Book Arts Workshop: The 3D Structure and Popout Book


Saturday May 10, 2014
10:00 AM
A book falls between a flat, static image such as a painting, a print or a drawing, and a video or film. Unlike video and film, a book allows the sequence of images to be controlled by the viewer. Students will learn three basic 3D structures and then learn to improvise from them. Featuring New Jersey book artist and educator Debra Weier. Fee: $30.00

Think of music: Mozart composed twelve piano variations on “Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.” He began with a very simple theme and made variations. (Click here to watch a video of variations on Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.)  Improvising a 3D structure or popout in a book is the same idea. You learn a basic form and make variations.

Debra Weier holds an MA and MFA from the University of Wisconsin at Madison. Her works encompass a breadth of media, including painting, artists’ books, installation sculpture and a public mural. She is well known for her innovative artists’ books, which integrate three-dimensional imagery with poetry. She has collaborated with poets Paul Muldoon, Jerome Rothenberg, and Ben Belitt (translations of Pablo Neruda). Debra’s works are widely collected by major museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Victoria & Albert Museum. Debra has had numerous solo exhibitions across the United States, including at the Donald Wren Gallery and Hanah-Kent Gallery, both in New York City, and J. Rosenthal Gallery in Chicago. She has also taught at Princeton University, Brown University and Hampshire College.
