Wayfinding

Berkeley: Flying Fish Press, 2019. Hardcover. Number 23 of 50 copies, signed and numbered by the artist/author. This book was inspired by a series of conversations between Julie Chen and her daughter, Eleanor Chen-Ranstrom about pattern, texture, perception, and learning. Artist's statement: "Wayfinding examines the relationship between physical and mental learning through the context of navigation through time and space. The piece focuses the reader’s experience on the physicality of the book as object with the inclusion of three-dimensional cast paper panels and pages that rattle when turned, all housed in a series of shallow boxes that are hinged together in layers. The inclusion of a three-dimensional alphabet abstracted from diagrams of flag semaphore addresses the activities of signaling, translation and gesture, highlighting how information is taken in by all the senses and not just through the eyes" Letterpress printed using pressure printing and photopolymer plates on handmade papers from the Morgan Paper Conservatory and Hahnemuhle Bugra. Measures 9 x16 inches byx4 .5 inches when closed, opening to a full width of 41 inches In fine condition. ARTSB/042820. Fine.
