Jody Zellen is guest speaker for Honglan Huang's Student Seminar, "Text, Image, & Beyond: the Architecture of Book Space." The title of her talk is "Artist's Books to Mobile Arts: Interactions from Page to Screen."
In her presentation Artist's Books to Mobile Art: Interactions from Page to Screen Los Angeles based artist Jody Zellen will discuss the relationship between her artist's books and her screen-based works. She writes: "Each time I create a book I play with the form in a new way, experimenting with different types of paper as well as with ways of interrupting the reading experience. The books I make are visual experiences that take viewers from beginning to end through a specific narrative sequence. Looking at a book is both active and interactive. In thinking about ways to transform a book into a screen-based experience— for the web or for mobile devices— I equate the turning of a page to a tap or a click. I see the screen as a sculptural space where the layering of images creates depth. In my screen based works I play with random juxtaposition, as well as the ability for the user to scale and reposition elements to create new narratives."
She will show images from her artist's books (Beneath the Ruins, City Views, The Blackest Spot, Of a Lost Utopia and If), her online net art projects (Ghost City, Crowds and Power, Without A Trace), and her iPad apps (Spine Sonnet, 4 Square, Episodic and Urban Rhythms).
