Hello and good day to you Mrs. Thalia
I am writing to you to in regards about your gallery space and to propose an installation based on the work my classmates and I have done. I am a Communication Design student at New York City College of Technology studying Communication Design interested in Illustration. Together with my classmates, we have developed an installation entitled A Glossument. Inspired by Tom Phillip’s A humument, this project has centered around the idea of using words we have placed into our glossary and portray them in different ways through out our books. That being said if two students were to use the same word it would ok to do so because each of student will portray a specific word differently and/ or use a different meaning of the word if it had more than one definition. Our project consist of working in vary and creative ways to be able to do so, where each book is different, each with its own unique style by each student and to show something about ourselves that even we may have not seen.
Our installations include a variety of creativity and usage of different materials. My work, in particular, can vary from different tools, but mainly using paint, drawing markers, paper and washi tape. With the color blue shown within the pages. Each piece to be displayed has already been prepared with an appropriate didactic panels, Culminate, Treacherous, Dwell and Demarcation,” as well as a catalogue entry for myself and each student about their work and contribution. Within the books each of us have our own theme or an idea repeated through out the pages to give in a meaning. For my book in particular the theme is blue, but it ranges with different blues. The blues can be a color when your sad or a color when your relax, or maybe even cold. It’s a one color with different ranges and different emotions that it can show to someone.
My classmates and I hope that this project is interesting to you and be able to become part of your gallery. If there are any additional question to our projects you may reach me at the address above. I look forward to your response and may you have a lovely day.
