Project: Berg. Graphic Sublayer Transfer System (GSTS) Workshop


A collective poster and book making workshop designed by Berg. and hosted at The California Academy of Science, The Institute of advancing Uncertainty, SF Art Book Fair, and California College of the Arts.

The workshop invites the public create a poster using graphite rubbings over curated images from our research. The rubbing technique pulls the underlying structures up from below. The posters are scanned and added to the Berg. archive. We then print a limited edition book that catalogs the posters. The interaction is determined by the spatial layout of the workshop and is responsive to user feedback. As we restage the workshop, we adapt to the specific architecture, time frame and constraints of each installation.
