GD: What ’s your Story?
Lesson #5, Fri. Dec. 14th. 9:00 PB 111

Prepare a PRINTED dummy based on all the input and inspiration so far. Make it as good and precise as you possibly can…Think carefully about what size you want to make your dummy. Think about the cover and the way it relates or contrasts to the interior pages. Think about how you enter your book. Where is the title and your name and where is the information you want to give to the audience: at the beginning, at the end or otherwise? Finally think about what materials you want to use for the cover and the interior. Class will be divided into the three groups as before: GROUP 1: 9:00-10:00 GROUP 2: 10:15-11:15 GROUP 3: 11:30-12:30. Space: PB 111

An ordinary miracle
Alexandra Hunts

Maakbaarheid van het geluk

In de tijden van crisis geloven mensen niet in geluk, want dat lijkt onmogelijk in deze moeilijke tijden. Maar ze vergeten dat je eigen geluk in je eigen handen ligt. Je kan zelf onmogelijke waar maken. Om dit uit te beelden heb ik gekozen voor voorwerpen uit sprookjes en legenden die in het echt niet bestaan, maar door ze zelf te maken en te fotograferen, worden ze geen sprookje meer- maar echt en reëel.
