The theme for the 2006 Exhibition was Epoch.
The theme Epoch refers to the interaction between the reading material and life experience of the reader
in creating a complete experience.
My piece, titled Re:Mark, is a recorded experience (or remark) to what has been read and serves as a review for the next reading session. The sliding scale makes it easy for the reader to record his or her mood.
The theme for the 2007 exhibition was Parallax.
The meaning of parallax is the apparent displacement of an observed object due to a change in the position of the observer. In reading a book, the meaning and interpretation of content changes with the reader's familiarity with the subject, personal life experience and bias.
My piece, titled Re:View, (or Review) includes sixteen antonym pairs, such as accuracy/distortion and decisiveness/ambivalence, that reflect the reader's impression of the message of the book...his or her point of view. The more confident words are written in bold text.
The theme for the 2008 exhibition was Insert.
My piece, titled Insert ReAd Me, (or Inset Red Me) is a series of inserted pieces which demonstrate to the reader the dramatic changes in meaning caused when just one letter of a word is missing or added. The bookmark is used horizontally, like an insert; a placeholder for the text. The two-sided card tells the same story on both sides, with correct spelling on one side and the other with deleted or added letters.
