      This video demonstrates the process behind binding my Window Farms book. The project can be viewed in full here: http://www.behance.net/gallery/Window-Farms-Information-Design-Book/8243003 This personal project is inspired by the urban farming movement. The hand bound book acts as a reference guide on the indoor, year round, urban farming method, Window Farming (www.windowfarms.org). The book features 5 chapters including an interactive gardening journal. The book visualizes various types of data and instructions covering everything from assembly to mounting to coming up with a growing plan. The book feature fold-out posters while the playful accordion format allows the reader to fold open the entire length of the publication to reference content from several chapters all at once.

      • Making of Neverending Story Book


        from Nasser Samman Added 1,581 2 4

        As long as I can remember, ever since I first saw this movie way back in the late 80’s, I always wished I had a copy of that exact book that the character Bastian holds in his hands. When I discovered that a forum had a number of people attempting to replicate this book, I decided to set myself the challenge of reproducing this classic film prop as close as possible to the original design whilst adding touches of my own interpretation. Combining 3D printing with old and new techniques in book binding, I am very happy with how this replica turned out and now I can escape to Fantasia whenever I like.

            Shot by Julie Pepin Original Song, "Catchin' Butterflies", Written and Performed by Laena Geronimo (of Los Angeles band Raw Geronimo) Edited by Gina Clyne --- NOW AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE! 1, 2, 3. (or: To Do's Done To Date) Photography Book Three Photography Projects by Gina Clyne, 2003-2005. Limited edition of 50, hand bound and numbered by artist. 4"x4", 42 pages, screen printed cover, hard cover book. Available for purchase at www.ginaclyne.com - $45 (shipping included) A book project 5 years in the making, 1,2,3. is a compilation of three photography projects which trace the artist's developing relationship with photography as an art student from 2003 to 2005. This limited edition of 50 books was hand bound in its entirety by the artist; from the page layout to the screen printing of its hard cover, her hand was involved in each step of the process. Book includes projects: 1. Big Sur, 2003 I was entering my first year of art school and was already beginning to notice that my inspiration to shoot photographs was dwindling. I had been an active high school photography student and was yearning to take the next step into the world of photography that lived beyond my 35MM camera. I was soon introduced to my first medium format twin lens reflex camera and immediately immersed myself in this new manner of picture taking. I was in love with the contemplative approach and procedure, its mechanical features, and the new world that was being seen through my viewfinder. Photography was once again about exploration, each photograph offering an avenue to discovery. (http://ginaclyne.com/photo-2003-big-sur.htm) 2. Ceiling Fans, 2004 I lived in a house on Carlos Avenue with eight roommates. When things went bad, the house divided. Before we ultimately decided to leave, I asked my roommates, along with other regulars at the house, to pose for me under the ceiling fan in the kitchen, the common area. Then I had them draw their idea of a ceiling fan. I was seeking more interaction in my photography work and started implementing systems and outside variables that would work together to form a final result. I was becoming less and less impressed with the photographer simply photographing for the sake of the photograph and more interested in using photography as a tool to express a larger idea. (http://ginaclyne.com/photo-2004-ceiling-fan.htm) 3. Portraits, 2005 I asked the people closest to me to pose for a portrait. I then asked them, "what are you best at and why?". I'm curious how image and text play off eachother, how they both seem to be powerful and fall short at the same moment. There is something to be said about committing to something that is supposed to capture your essence, whether it be a pose or a sentence. Cynicism was forming as my studies in photo theory progressed. A critical eye fell upon all my former perceptions of photography and I began to question the role of the photographer and their motives for picture taking in their practice. During this time I was also starting to explore writing and recognized the same power and weakness in photography that the written word possessed. Text was incorporated into all my artwork, including my photography, as it helped me explore the seemingly overwhelming doubts I was experiencing at the time.
