mid-term presentations at Camberwell – work is shown without the maker contextualising it with an introduction. a raw yet intriguingly empowering experience for the student. yesterday's session was so good that i wish it had been recorded. we had the whole range of the book experience on display – starting with the kindle ending with the body as book, book without physical presence. in between there were codex books and book objects which alluded to other forms of reading including the map and the newspaper –wonderful. we even discussed the deconstruction and destruction of the book – most excellent. anybody watching would have had a real insight to the full range of what the book art course encompasses and celebrates on the Book Art Course at Camberwell.
