Curations Exhibit: The book is…

By Visual Communications Lecturer, Zoë Sadokierski
12 May – 19 June 2015, City Campus Library

To coincide with the Sydney Writers' Festival (18 - 24 May), this Curation draws on work by the 2015 Artist-in-Residence, Zoë Sadokierski, as well as contributions from the UTS community and more. 

Artist's Talk

Zoë will be giving an Artist Talk at 1pm on Wednesday 10 June, Level 2 Entrance Foyer. Zoë will discuss how she accidentally fell in love with Ed Ruscha while foraging in the MoMA archives, describe how she produced a book in a week and another book in four hours using the ‘Espresso Book Machine’ in NYC, and share some of the work in progress she has produced so far during her 2015 Artist’s Residency at UTS Library. 

Level 2 Entrance Foyer

UTS Library Artist-in-Residence Zoë Sadokierski investigates what a book is in a time when ‘books’ can be accessed on telephones via clouds, talk to us (in a voice of our choice), show us videos and demand that we interact with them.

Exhibited are sketches and book-binding experiments from a six-week research trip visiting book publishers and library archives in the USA, as well as two books published on an ‘espresso book machine’ in NYC; the first written, designed and printed in one week, the second was created and produced in four hours.
