Additional Conference Opportunities
[ #in code_cbaa]
[ Katie Baldwin, Tricia Treacy, Denise Bookwalter, Macy Chadwick and Sarah Bryant ]
Using social media, letterpress, and text from conference participants, a project will be created by working with condensed communication via twitter. Conference attendees can use the hashtag: #incodecbaa. For 48 hours, project leaders will gather text on twitter with this trending hashtag and limited characters.
This idea is inspired by dual interests in limitations of communication in a physical sense in both the digital and the analog worlds. In letterpress, the physical letters that fit within the job case or on the press are similar to the 140 characters that compose a tweet in the digital world.
The last day of the conference (Saturday) will be spent in the printshop at University of Utah interpreting the text to produce a series of experimental posters. They will also be documented and retweeted on twitter, extending the voice of CBAA to a broader audience. This project is made possible by a generous donation from Legion Paper, NY. Please visit www.shift-lab.org for more information.

Circle the Drain
"Circle the Drain is the result of a collaboration between writer Casey Ritenour and book artist Jaime Shafer. It’s a collection of essays written as a response to a traumatic sexual assault. The
book chronicles the act itself
and the raw emotion the victim experiences in the aftermath. Through vivid imagery, it challenges the reader to relive
the pain a young woman
