Digital Foundations: we’re blogging the writing of a book
We, xtine burrough and Michael Mandiberg, are writing a (text)book that integrates the formal principles of the Bauhaus Basic Course with contemporary digital production instruction. We are taking the classics (like Josef Alber’s color theory exercises) and using those to teach the fundamentals of Illustrator, or using Hanah Hoch to teach Photoshop.
As professors we are tired of having to use crappy software manuals (full of drop shadows & outer glows, and the author’s mediocre vacation photographs) when we
have to teach our students how to make. So we’re making our own.
Stay tuned for more details.
