22 July 2012 updateElective Project starts 26 july 2012 in binderyCANVAS students inspired and enthused by old andnew book technologies in bindery [Professor Welby Ings]•This research will be the basis of a paper oncombining old and new technologies in tertiaryeducation•Other Graphics staff in the iPad GD CoP latent grantgroup are doing very interesting ipad initiatives thisyear, and we form the starting platform of a newGraphics research hub
5 August 2012 updateElective Project weeks I & 2.The Brief has two main components:1] A sample set of limited editions (x5) in a fold-down box bindings styles demonstrated to select from2] A prototype for a printed limited edition (to be developed in consultation with the tutor but it is essentially a self- directed project with your own creative content)The context for your project is the Artists’ Books tradition, starting with the Russian Avant-Garde, Fluxus, etc.An epub (optional): The project invites connections between these more historic movements and today’s epublication context.
Contexts shown: starting with the Russian Avant-Garde,Fluxus, etc. Bookmarked links on the ipad.
Student publication proposals are talked through inone-to-one tutorials. Visual examples put up on thescreen for discussion and contextualisation.
ISSUES to be addressedCapital equipment / investment:•iPads needed.Currently no ipads available in the schoolfor students to book out for trials or exhibition. Funding forequipment needed [Faculty level directives]. Staff unableto get ipad/iphones and support equipment (enclosues,wide screens, kiosks etc.) on IDP funds or Capex (NOTE:capex previously funded class sets of wacom tablets etc.but faculty clampdown leaves those at the teachinginterface iPadless)•Wireless networks in some buildings needs significantupgrade
