From production and creation to access and use, evolving technologies such as smart phones have made bookmaking a rapidly evolving art form. “Pulp to Pixels: Artists’ Books in the Digital Age” is an exhibition exploring interactive, generative art with text and image. Some of the pieces function as books that can be enhanced using technology; others require a smartphone or tablet to view them at all.
Among the featured artists are Paul Zelevansky, Jie Qi, Colette Fu, Danielle Aubert, Amaranth Borsuk, Gretchen Henderson, and M. Kasper.
The exhibition will be in Hampshire College’s Main Gallery from November 5 through November 16. It formally kicks off on Thursday, November 8, at 4 p.m., with Gretchen Henderson as keynote speaker, followed by a reception for the exhibition.
The reception is co-sponsored by the Hampshire College Board of Trustees. The exhibit is a Mellon Foundation-funded Five College digital humanities project.
Regular gallery hours are Monday through Friday from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. and Sunday from 2 to 5 p.m.

A bookmaking workshop for Five College students will be held on Friday, November 9, from 1-3 p.m. (with pizza available for workshop participants at 12:30 p.m.).
