Artist's Book Proposal

I met with Melissa today. She showed me the Quickset debossing and the pearl foil. The book will go into the 1st show, the wooden case will count as the final. I'm not sure about the interactive part of the box yet, that is I don't know if I want to hear the sound of chalk or if it really fits in with the book.

I also showed her the idaea for the new book in which people would add there own marks, and donate. she agreed that it would work best if it was in conjunction with a performance.

For this class the proposal and prototype of the book will be enough. t may just stay as a proposal, or may be sold as a "proposal" to help fund the project.

As for tallying, she mentioned that it could be a dispenser which dispenses chalk when money is put in. This couldbe costly, unless I get inexpensive chalk. I also need to contact oxfam or other agencies to see about the viability of raising money, and the appropriateness of donating.
