BOOK
Imagine a world where books- every kind of written word- was ILLEGAL.

What would happen if tomorrow a law was put into place and carried out where all books were to be destroyed? If you were found owning anything with written words you would be taken to jail and everything you owned would be destroyed.


What things would have to happen in today’s world for our government to end up completely outlawing books?



What would our society look like after the fact?
A big party?? A massive fallout with destruction wherever you look? What would our day-by-day lives look like?
stop after "filthy hands"
What would the rest of your life look like?
How might your
grandchildren
grow up?
What and who would be affected if this were a reality?

No written record of anything. Hospitals, Prisons, Schools, Libraries, Newspapers, Magazines, Texting……….

We would lose so much of our basis for education- EVERYTHING is based on something written down.
If you do not have writing, do you have language??
If you do not have language, do you have conversations??
If you do not have conversations, do you have a high-functioning civilization?
Without verbal and written language, we are no different than any animal you can find at the zoo.
Banned
Books:

What's all the hype??
Bible, Torah, Adventures of Huck Fin, Gulliver's Travels, The Scarlet Letter, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian, Ender's Game, The Perks of Being a Wallflower, Water for Elephants, TinTin, The Kite Runner, And Tango Makes Three, Fifty Shades of Grey, Fight Club, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, The Hunger Games, Brave New World, Catcher in the Rye, Push, Mein Kampf, To Kill a Mockingbird, The Twilight Series, Night Talk, Its Perfectly Normal, Girl Interrupted, The Golden Compass, TTFN, My Sister's Keeper, The Color Purple, The Lovely Bones, The Book of Bunny Suicides: Little Fluffy Rabbits Who Just Don't Want to Live Anymore....................

Books that have been banned at one point in time:
Each day, all across the country, one of our most basic freedoms — the right to read — is in danger. In communities large and small, censorship attempts threaten to undermine our freedom to read. Without our constant support, the
First Amendment freedoms that we so often take for granted — the right to read, explore ideas, and express ourselves freely — are at risk.
bringing it all together...
Printed books have an increasingly diminishing role in our digitally oriented society.

With this project we will explore the physicality of books as a dying medium and add a creative twist to their
theme
.

HOMEWORK... (not really)
Bring in a few personal things that can be glued down to a surface, or added to the book. It can be
anything
that has to do with the concept you chose.
What this might look like to another artist:
1- Choose a book [[wisely]].

2- Research the book and come up with a
concept
to create your altered book about. It could either relate to the
Theme
of the book, or be based on an
Opposing Theme
for contrast.

3- Think about how you will add a personal touch to the project.

4- BRAINSTORM like a crazy person. Write as fast as you can, for the allotted time.
Anything
that comes to mind when thinking about your book's concept.
