Draft of text for the poster:

Sourcing inspiration from Tom Phillips’s altered text, A Humument, COMD 1100 and ENG 1101 teamed up in the Ways of Seeing: Adventure with Image and Text Learning Community to curate a project that integrates both words and visuals. Like Phillips, students found inexpensive used books to transform into new artistic creations both in appearance, using ink, paint, pencil, cut-outs, folding, and burn-out, and in theme. The resulting work merges image and text for each new project or concept in both courses.
