Bendis will discuss two separate research projects. The first is a web app that enables one to write open poetry and stories using the words and word frequencies contained in the two Alice books. The second project captured very high resolution illustration images to both reveal small details contained in the original illustration and to use a laser-cutter to convert the photographic image into a new wood block for printing purposes.
