Spines: Central Axis from which Strength is Derived.
Literature, as a medium, has the capacity to convey our ideas, our emotions, and our thoughts. Such notions, be they factual or fictional, are bound together by the spine of the book. It is a structure designed to burden the weight of the context held within the pages: the tangible attribute that differentiates a book from a collection of letter forms.
The Spines exhibition is a collection of discarded books, appropriated and reinvented by the students of Graphic Design I, under the direction of Rita Daly. These pieces are our ideas, emotions, and thoughts, factual or fictional: their content, translated into original conceptions, remain founded upon and supported by the spines.
