Chromatic Interactions II
I was commissioned to create an interactive book.
I created “Chromatic Interactions”
Chromatic Interactions is a flag book is comprised of an accordion spine, front and back covers, and flag pages which are pockets with windows cut out of them to reveal both front and back of the cards that visitor participants wrote and drew on, then inserted into the pockets.
It was eye-opening to see how people responded, what they wrote and drew, and how the book transformed over time.
I am exploring this phenom through a series of posts, now that the show is over. The CAFAM was kind enough to save and give to me many of the file cards added to the book by the participants who interacted with the piece…keeping it in a continual state of transformation.
The front and back covers had windows cut out of them that correlated with the windows cut out of the flag pocket pages.
Someone had to remove the cards so that new ones could be inserted. I am still not sure if this was the Museum staff, or the patron participants themselves.
Here is some of what they wrote….
Actually, they all do.
