Spandrel

Spandrel

Spandrel uses traditional and non-traditional processes to play with the reading of a poem.  One poem is on the first page and slowly transforms through the 150 pages into the second poem, which is on the last page. In the middle of the book the text is unreadable but as the viewer nears the end the text comes back into focus. The project was a two year collaboration between Frank Giampietro and Denise Bookwalter. The entire book draws from the architectural term spandrel: the space between the curve of an arch and its adjacent wall or ceiling.
