Using Form as a Constraint to Express Non-Linear Narratives
This workshop was performed during metaLAB's Wintersession course, Appropriate Memories: A Photography Remix Studio at the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts (CCVA) at Harvard University in January 2016. Marshall designed this particular workshop to encourage exploring the possibilities of generating abstract narratives through form.
Students learned basic bookmaking techniques, to sew pamphlet stitch booklets, and also constructed folding maze books. One piece of paper, and a few folds and cuts later, students had created their first vessel for an abstract narrative. Students created final projects influenced by and reaction to the diverse archive of photos of APPC.

One inspired student, Boya Guo, MFA student of the Harvard Graduate School of Design, chose to make a maze book for her final project, titled Zooscape, for the studio course.
