Alternative Structures

Alternative Structures was a series of books that were made during workshops with Islam Aly in 2018. Each person learned how to make various forms of books and how to use a book to tell multiple narratives, including dos-à-dos binding, exploring the connections between the book form and it’s content.

The final workshop was held at Fleisher Art Memorial in Philadelphia, PA. These works were displayed in the exhibitions of the project at Swarthmore College, Parkway Central Free Library of Philadelphia, Twelve Gates Arts and Booklyn. Some were also displayed as part of other programming at University of Pennsylvania, College Book Arts Association, NYC Book and Ephemera Fair, and Millersville University.
