The project "Tell carftsmanship 2.0" is a hybird edition which links paper and digital. This first test connects a paper book and a screen. It's by touching the contact points on the paper that video animations and texts appear on the screen. The goal is to show that in front of a printed book we don’t have to have only a passive reading.
This project is also the opportunity to tell the craftsmanship evolution from the Middle Ago until today. It’s also an attempt answer to the questions : what is craftsmanship ? what is it to “make” today ?
Software and tool used : Processing and Makey Makey.
Risograph printing of the illustrated book, at Risotto Studio (Glasgow, Scotland). Three colors used : medium blue, fluo orange and metalic gold. Print on Cyclus, recycled paper, 200gsm.
