ESCAPE VELOCITY: Alternative Instruction Prototype for Playing the Knowledge Game.

Escape Velocity is a postcard/PowerPoint-based book that traces and critiques the impact of the university on art since the 1960s. Escape Velocity is not an academic book, but an experimental book-based prototype that takes the visual and logical possibilities of the postcard and PowerPoint as the point of departure for its visual organization. A PowerPoint model was chosen because of its relationship to contemporary academic systems of communication and its impact on how knowledge is now organized and communicated within and between the university and the art world, the two being conceived, from the book's perspective, as inextricably linked together.
