Methods of Perception focuses on how we perceive the world around us through our five senses. The book was created using an extensive process of creating a work book and then taking multiple pages from the book and overlaying them using Photoshop and InDesign.
The work book consists of about 50 spreads of textures. The objects used to create the book consist of fabric, wood, bark, bottle caps, clay, paint, photos, spices (i.e. salt, pepper, paprika, garlic, sugar, etc...), fur, hair, yarn, thread, glass, hemp, netting, lace, dry fruit, lemons, honey, Styrofoam, wax, fire (pages were burnt), ashes, soot, flowers (real and fake), feathers, and much more. The work book has everything, but the kitchen sink (well there maybe a photo).
The workbook was created over the course of 10 weeks. Upon completion pages from the book were photographed and then munipulated using Photoshop.
The Methods of Perception book was created using InDesign. By placing the images in InDesign I was able to create the book quickly. The text and opacity overlays throughout the book were used to make the text stand out from the background. By using InDesign I was able to have a cohesive design and grid aligned book.
