Explore the world of erasure, a genre of book art created by erasing found texts. Newspaper clippings, book pages, and any text new or old can serve as the basis for re-routing language and image into art. Develop your own visual tool kit by using elements of paper cutting, pen and ink, collage, and unique media (like Wite-Out or metal leaf) in unexpected ways. We will also investigate the lineage of erased art from Robert Rauschenberg to Yoko Ono. This class blends the visual and literary and is open to artists and writers of all levels.
