This cookbook is an ongoing project that documents all my favorite recipes. The style is meant to keep everything straightforward, making it a little less intimidating for those who don't have a lot of cooking experience. From an exact ingredients list down to the measurements, as well as straightforward instructions, this cookbook will be sure to streamline your cooking process.
the light project
My mission for this project was to explore three different aspects or perspectives that involve light: Color, Interaction, and Emotion.
light as color
Light As Color analyzes the way light interacts with color through projections and patterns. Two projectors were set up on both sides of a room, projecting a variety of different patterns. Different colored gels were placed over each projector, so that the projections would overlap. Each pattern explores the the way that colors mix through light, and what shapes would be created based off of the different color separations.
light as emotion
Light as Emotion is risograph printed using fluorescent pink and medium blue, two very contrasting colors, almost referencing the emotions happy and sad. The risograph allowed me to play with overlap and transparency, something that cannot be done on a laser printer. It also created a fun challenge with the limited color palette, as I wanted to see how far I was able to push the concept, allowing the risograph technique to influence my design.
light as interaction
Light as Interaction explores the role that light plays in interacting with everyday objects, creating reflections, shapes, and shadows beside or within the objects. This book is laser and risograph printed.
The Compilation is all four light books combined. The challenge was to compile them into a 100 page book that remains cohesive. The gif pictured above is a sneak peak of each section.
