The Electrobook workshop

June 22, 2009

This two day workshop took place at Fremantle Arts Centre in Western Australia. Ten participants and myself spent two full days constructing kinetic sculptures or “insect books”. The first day (June 14th) featured the development of handmade books (signature and accordian style) and the second focused on constructing circuit boards in conjunction with elements of book binding.

Workshop participants:

Amanda Alderson, Rebecca Baumann, Cherie Cable, Sarah Coakley, Brenda Grace, Ruth Parker, Pia Sweeting, Nikki Ward, Gisela Zuchner-Mogall & Joshua Schwebel

Here’s a shot of the Fremantle Arts Centre courtyard. It is home to an art exhibition gallery and a variety of art studio for visiting artists. (The history of the building is fascinating- it used to be an asylum for psychiatric disorder and women.)
