The first task at hand for this one day workshop was to transcribe a one minute audio clip. Next, gathering black and white imagery was done by photocopying random books from the library. Each workshop participant did the same two tasks before the workshop began, and upon arrival we all pinned our images up on the walls creating a visual library that we would all later work from. The participants were grouped together randomly and took three transcribed narratives and physically cut them up to come up with a new narrative. We then created a book with the risograph using found imagery that told the story of our new narrative without words.

The story we outlined was about a boy named Nick who struggled with hair addiction and the strain that this caused within his relationship with his father. The book heavily utilizes the texture of hair for emotional impact and to successfully depict the dense complication of addiction.
