codex event 4.jpg

the codex events at QCA were initiated in 2011 with codex event 8. Each event is collaborative in nature and aims to produce either a series of artists books or an editioned artists book. The nature of each event is shaped by the invited participants who are asked to investigate the relationship between three fundamental elements of Print Culture;

papermaking, printmaking and the book.


The paper balloons illustrated above were produced as part of codex event 4 (pflight of the paper balloons) in 2007. Participating artists were Sarah Bowen, Darren Bryant, Liz Deckers, Rebekah Evans, Louise Irving, Joanna Kambourian & Tim Mosely. Artists books generated during codex event 4 are now held in significant artists book collections including, the Harry Elkins Widener Memorial Library, Harvard University, the Australian Library of Art, State Library of Queensland and the Bibliotheca Liborum Apud Artificem, Sydney, Australia.
