Interpretive Anecdotes on the Risograph 
Tricia Treacy

June 16 & 17
Friday & Saturday, 10 am–5 pm

In this workshop, participants experience accelerated collaborations through brief, brainstorming sessions and use of the Risograph as a generative tool for making. The ideation process begins with interpreting a story from audio samples and continues with prompts that allow participants to accidentally recreate/rethink/mash-up stories. These audio stories and a shared reserve of found images serve as catalysts for small groups to visualize an intersection of the narratives and develop two-page spreads for inclusion in a collective booklet. Each participant leaves with a copy or two of the editioned book and the skills to print on the spectacular Risograph.

Tricia Treacy is an interdisciplinary artist, designer, and educator raised in an Irish American family whose experimental and collaborative practice intersects print media, design, and publishing into participatory projects. She attempts to blur the boundaries between art and design while extending the notion of a book. Creative research has been presented at venues including Atypi (Hong Kong + Barcelona), the Type Directors Club (New York), Tasmeen biennial Art + Design conference (Doha, Qatar), and TypeCon national conferences. She was awarded the Rome Prize in Design from the American Academy in Rome, a Center for Craft, Creativity and Design Project Grant, and a Women in Design Biennial Special Mention Researchers Award from Association Italian Design of Visual Communication. Her work has been exhibited widely and books are housed in over sixty collections. Tricia is an associate professor of studio art at Dartmouth College in Hanover, NH and holds an M.F.A.(Printmaking) from The University of the Arts.
