DRIFTERS Exhibition Catalog

Pam Lomgobardi, Artist

Book, 5.5” x 8.5”, 36 pages



Artist Pam Longobardi asked GDLOFT to create a catalog for her sculpture series Drifters. Longobardi constructed the sculptures using harvested plastic waste collected on the shores of various islands throughout the world. The catalog’s design mimics the ebb and flow of water tides. The page progression is cyclical, “rolling” the reader’s view from one side of the catalog to the other. The reader delays the flow of this progression by pausing to read the essays that appear throughout the catalog. Concept phrases are hidden on select pages in the catalog, giving the reader new information to discover spontaneously. This feature reflects Longobardi’s creative process of searching for materials that wash up along the shore.
