Investigating forms of presentation of the Artist’ Book.

The book on the table. /// The closed archives. /// The book in a box. /// The open archives. ///
The book on the shelves. /// The book underfoot. /// The book on the ground.
/// The book in an intimate space. /// The book as installation. /// The book in a working space. ///
The book as an object to walk around. /// The book as a concept for a space.

Ingrid Scheinhardt is an independent graphic designer from Amsterdam. In 2005 she finished her studies at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy. Therefore she obtained her Master in Theaterwetenschappen (Theatre Sciences) at the University of Amsterdam. She makes autonomous works and works by order. Orders that require research and analysis and allow an autonomous and timeless approach have her preference.

Her love for books comes from the fact that books are objects themselves: the choice for the material, form, printing technique and binding form is what has her interest. She likes to analyse, structure and arrange the information, to bring in the layers and to make the navigation- or codesystems.

The closely observing as a matter of course of people in their own habitat forms the base for her work. She will make visible what people wonder, to share it with them. The observing and the way of looking influence the ultimate work. She likes to work is series. In order to transmit an idea she often shows the proces of changing. From the spectator she expects the willing to observe until the idea lets itself disclose clearly and step-by-step. The final work has to remain open for own interpretation and discussion. By nature she has a very visual mind. Important in her work are the visual experiments and the quest for reproduction techniques.
