COMPOUND Kickstarter Project


There is a Kickstarter project that I would like you to e aware of titled, COMPOUND. This is a book project by graduate students at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design (MCAD). The title of the project comes from the huge studio space that we share in South Minneapolis, affectionately known as COMPOUND.

COMPOUND is a 156-page publication compiling 22 artists and designers. The book is broken up into two sections: the first section of the book includes artist reviews, interviews with COMPOUND members, and pieces of writing that the artists and designers consider influential or inspirational to their work. The second section correlates the text section with the individual contributor’s visual practice. Samples of each artist’s and designer’s work is presented in full color on high quality matte paper. In addition to the two sections there is a secondary narrative that runs through the publication that timelines the development of the studio space that we all share: our COMPOUND. The book ends with a detailed index that includes a brief artist statement from everyone involved.
