Derivative Concept This piece is my second iteration of F(x). I wanted to make the experience more interactive and also ďŹ nd areas where math and my other interests overlapped. I found that the design and calculus overlapped in their vocabulary; line, form, point, balance, and function. I wanted to combine these deďŹ nitions with images to create a multi-disciplinary artist book.
Process Tissue paper collage, printed vellum, acrylic tools, and birch light table
To create the transparencies I layered sheets of tissue paper between wax paper and melted the wax together. The melted wax had a stained glass effect that I really liked when I held the pages up to the window. I decided to build a light table to store the book along with the acrylic rulers. I left the pages unbound to allow the reader to play with different combinations of layering. The pages are kept in a blizzard bind rice paper case to keep them organized while still leaving the pages loose.
