Round Robin 3
Round Robin 3
Opening Reception and Book Launch and Signing: May 5, 3-6pm
ROUND ROBIN is a collaborative illustration project consisting of three books undertaken by Daniela Strijleva, Katy Wu, and Jennifer C. Chang.
ROUND ROBIN and ROUND ROBIN 2 each feature a series of fifteen illustrations connected through an ‘add-on’ word game. Each artist takes a turn providing a word inspired by the one previously supplied and illustrates only words written by her counterparts. The unique combination of words demands that the artist step outside her comfort zone while allowing her the freedom of interpretation and imagination.
ROUND ROBIN 3 maintains the spontaneous spirit of the first two installments but is also a departure. Instead of each artist adding a word, each artist writes a sentence; the sentences string together to create a narrative story. Thus each illustration in the book is connected to the previous and subsequent pages in a literal sense.
The third book was written by Daniela Strijleva, Katy Wu and Jennifer C. Chang, and co-written and edited by Liz Thiers.
1 [often as adj. ] a tournament in which each competitor plays in turn against every other : a round-robin competition.
2 a petition, esp. one with signatures written in a circle to conceal the order of writing.
3 a series or sequence : an inconclusive round robin of talks in Cairo, Washington, and New York.
