Art Assignment 45: Copy a Copy a Copy
For this assignment, I chose the novel JPod by Douglas Coupland.
Part of the reason I chose it is because it’s Canadian and I like to bring a little Can-Con (Canadian Content,) to my work. However, the main reason I chose this novel is because Coupland is both a writer and a visual artist and I love the visual ways he plays with text within his novels. See the gallery below for some examples from JPod.
I used a page of random letters and this photocopier to create my art.
I kept making the copies darker and smaller, until the page of the book disappeared. I think I’ll call it Evaporated.
The blurriness in the last few shots is not because of the camera work; the photocopier could not long focus on such small text. I took a few close up to show just how distorted the image became. #theartassignment
