We will be working on creating an improvisational piece using sophisticated spacing techniques to fit varied size types onto line or page. We will be receptive to the moment, and move to whatever direction the work takes us. We will critique the direction the design is going and make changes. To emphasize the unexpected directions creative work can take as a group, we will also engage in improvisational music making as a small group…with awareness on the in-motion state of listening and intuitive gravitation toward the next sound. This will inform our work for the next day. We will participate in group discussions about this creative process at intervals throughout the week.
Musicians and non musicians are both welcome, bring acoustic instrument(s) if possible.
Fully enrolled students will receive one finished printed participant copy. Students will range in experience. Musical abilities or letterpress experience not necessary.
