"Abstractus Minimus" = Tiny Abstract, for a tiny sketchbook.
I started with creating two acronyms from "Brooklyn Art Library" and one from my name, "Susan Sowers", from which a list of letters drove the subject matter focused primarily, but not completely, of nature. A basic experiment of focus and interpretation; how viewing just a piece of a subject can be interpreted totally different than what it actually is.
Then I designed-sketched fast and loose spreads of a macro and regular views of the subjects, interlacing unexpected playful renderings throughout the tiny book. The intention was to offer a visual parallel of how our life paths are often interspersed with the unexpected, nonlinear, unpredictable experiences, which after all, keeps life exciting and challenging.
