Kerry McAleer-Keeler: "Designed and executed by graduate students in the Fall of 2015, ReSound explores visual responses to sound within the landscape of Washington D.C. using letterpress, screenprint, and digital printing techniques. Focusing on the human experience of traversing the city, the book combines these printed responses with journals, maps, and process descriptions. Developed as a collaborative book arts experiment, ReSound represents an exercise in close attention and playful responses. "The QR codes presented inside the story are the gateway to the sounds explored graphically in the artist book." Five participants each created a section of the book. Sections are introduced with a color divider sheet and printed icon representing the type of sound or section of the city recorded. Each section includes a map of the section in DC where the recording was made, the responses to the sound, a timeline, and foldouts with the visual responses to the recording. Collaborators, Introduction: "Each of us chose a location in the Washington DC area and made a two-minute sound recording in that place. We then took our sound recording and created a visual interpretation. Next, we handed off the recording to another artist and they created her own response, not having seen the first image, and not knowing anything about the sound recording. These images form the primary components of this book. The viewer can see each pair of images at the same time, with the recorder's illustration on the top and the responder's on the bottom. To keep the separation clear, the primary and secondary prints have different color schemes. Accompanying the prints is a map of where the sound recording occurred, as well as the trip that the artist took to get to that location. The reader can use the included QR codes to link to the actual sound files, and can also reference the sound logs of the recordings. Timelines attempt to visualize how each artist's time-based experience of the sound traveled across the space they were given to work with. In addition to following each person's image making process, we hope you can begin to imagine, as we did, the makings of a sound map of the city.
