Research Context: The discussion about the future of the printed book is a current topic. How can the analog book relate to digital information carriers? Is the present-day design of paper books still relevant? In his artistic research, graphic designer Geoffrey Brusatto rethinks the traditional printed book. By means of a unique methodology, he de- and reconstructs the paper book to develop new visual and content structures. The fold plays an important role. Brusatto developed folding schemes that shape new book structures and page combinations. These schemes are interpreted as an open source tool so other designers can actively use them. In the context of the exhibition, a selection of artists and graphic designers were invited to use the folding schemes as a manual for their own creations.
Description: With the exhibition 'Ways of Folding', Z33 welcomes the first public presentation of the doctoral research in the arts of graphic designer Geoffrey Brusatto. This doctoral project is situated within PXL-MAD-Research, in collaboration with UHasselt and KULeuven. As a house for contemporary art, Z33 aims to act as a unique laboratory and a meeting point that brings together experiment and innovation. The combination of showing and supporting research in the arts becomes an interesting case study.
