Goldfish, Anna Marie Roos(2019) Living work of art, consumer commodity, scientific hero, and environmental menace: the humble goldfish is the ultimate human cultural artifact. A creature of supposedly little memory and a short lifespan, it has held universal appeal as a reservoir for human ideas and ideals. In ancient China, goldfish were saved from predators in acts of religious reverence and selectively bred for their glittering grace. In the East, they became the subject of exquisite art, regarded as living...
Teaching for People who Prefer Not to TeachEdited by Marjam Bayerdörfer & Rosalie Schweiker IBSN 978-1-907840-12-8.
A manual that fits in your pocket. “It’s a messy collection of ideas: contributions our friends and colleagues sent us, our own learning experiences and rumours we heard. You might ask yourself who this manual is for. Is it for teachers? Is it for students? Is it only relevant for teaching art? The answer is: Yes and No. We don’t know. Probably both.

Supersurfaces by Sophia VyzovitiISBN 978-90636912-1-9 (2006) BIS Publishers, Amsterdam.
In the form of a pocket diary, this booklet makes clear how the new technique of folding can be applied not only in architecture, but also in industrial, product or textile manufacture. Vyzoviti uses paper as an empirical model. She investigates and systematically describes how flat paper is transformed into volumes when creating prototypes. Supersurfaces is filled with hand-folded, twisted, wound and woven forms. This ‘other’ manner...
