just about a week ago came back from the city of Los Angeles where we gave a three day workshop at the Otis College of Art and Design. We had an absolutely great time with the students and the other visiting artists among who Adam Michaels from Project Projects, Donald Beekman and Liza Enebeis from Typeradio, Richard Niessen from Niessen en de Vries, Menno Cruijsen and Cecelia Martin from Lava and Felix Pfäffli from Feixen.
During our three day workshop entitled ‘Deadline: Tonight!’ students took on the role of editors and had to make three analogue transformations of existing printed publications. For example a gossip magazine was transformed into a movie script, a newspaper into a puzzle book and finally a fashion magazine into an an art book. While the students could only work by hand we filled the days with lots of deadlines – as we all know, working under pressure does evolve in great results!
On the last day we pulled all our efforts together to make a book out of the final works by the students. As expected – a day filled with deadlines but worth the pain! We want thank the scanning team, indesign team, printing team, binding team, exhibition team and presentation team for the great work!
A great thank you goes to Kali Nikitas and the Otis faculty who did a fabulous job during Design Week!
Peace from the west side,
C & G
