About the Book
This project was developed in a visiting designer workshop with Vaughan Oliver at RISD. It was a liberating experience. I teamed up with two fellow students, Camila Afanador and Milan Nedved. This project is an experimental approach to the idea of representing the 13th month. The 13th month is an abstract notion of time where anything can happen. Only having about 48 hours from start to finish on this project we needed to work fast. The 1st day started at the hardware store, we picked up as many 1′s and 3′s as we could find. With a macro lens we started experimenting. It was a lot of fun shooting the 13′s in a variety of environments. A lot of beautiful images emerged from this experiment, but it wasn’t until we went back to Milan’s house for dinner and drinks that we started projecting the images onto all different surfaces. We then started capturing images of the projections. We fell in love with this style of experimentation. We shot over 1300 images over the 2 days and created 13 (28″ x 40″) single image posters along with a 400 page book. The book contained many of the out takes. We printed 2 copies with blurb (highly recommend), one for us and one that we sent over the pond to VO. Thanks to Vaughan and thanks to Camila and Milan.
