2–Day Workshop: OK–RM – Making Books Move


This is PART 2 in a series of workshops by OK-RM, conceived to stimulate the impulsive production of ideas through a series of EXERCISES. The key is to think and react immediately.

The EXERCISES are intended to engage a range of skills critical to the practice of graphic design. Exercises and will touch on conceptual thinking, narrative, art-direction, image making and writing. Each EXERCISE has its own restrictions, imposed with the intention of focusing attention on the specific task at hand.

THINKING & DOING (PART 2) is formed of three EXERCISES working within the medium of moving image, specifically within the format of split screen film.

Films are composed of two 16×9 portrait films (A+B) placed side by side to make up a complete film.

Each EXERCISE yields one film per participant. Each film forms a chapter of a cumulative DIGITAL BOOK. Which can be found here:
