The Book as Art – Altered Book Project

April 10–17 in the UFV Abbotsford Library

Students in VA 115 (Material Practices) show their work in the context of the academic library

 “The space of a book is intimate and public at the same time; it mediates between private reflection and broad communication ... enclosure and exposure … exterior gestures and internal journeys … books work as statements that stand on their own, they are realized and objectified embodiments of the intimate authority each artist claims . . .”                                                                                                                                               Johanna Drucker

This project was designed to integrate and synthesize all aspects of the course into a perceptually cohesive experience. It is a space of incubation and reflection, exploring both the possibilities of content and the found and altered book as a physical object that stands on it’s own as a work of art.


Charlotte Ashfield, Jared Deck, Derek Ellis, Mara Haggquist, Amy Hall, Mitchel Huttema, Marjata Itkonen, Kenichi Kajiyama, Francis Kim, Jesse Klassen, Tanya McMillan, Francesca Moore, Patricia Pagowski, Jessica Peatman, Faye Shen, Wendy Tran, Charlotte Viau
