Explore the world of erasure, a genre of book art created by erasing found texts. Newspaper clippings, book pages, and any text new or old can serve as the basis for re-routing language and image into art. Develop your own visual tool kit by using elements of paper cutting, pen and ink, collage, and unique media (like WiteOut or metal leaf) in unexpected ways. We will also investigate the lineage of erased art from Robert Rauschenberg to Yoko Ono. This class blends the visual and literary and is open to artists and writers of all levels. *Reduced tuition available for students of writing and visual art programs at UT Austin, St. Edwards, Texas State, and other universities.

This class will start with creating experimental collages using photographs, found imagery, and drawing materials, which we’ll then transform into a basic origami-fold book. These will be editioned, shared, and exchanged in class. As the collage process continues, the folded book structures will evolve into more complex forms including the lotus, accordion, and flag book. These can be as abstract, conceptual, representational, or experimental as you’d like. No prior experience with book arts is necessary.
