Broken Code

paper, ink, plywood covers, milk paint, wax

4 x 4 x 1

edition size: 20

© 2013


Broken Code is made with a 6-color linoleum reduction print based on the straight forward style used in science/pocket guide books and inspired by plants and creatures in the artists’ own garden. The art print has been dissected and reassembled in the form of Hedi Kyle’s flag book structure to illustrate genetic modification of nature. The text combines relatively legible generic statements regarding GMOs with the letters used in DNA sequencing in a cut-up pattern both informative and annoying.

Laura Ladendorf is a designer, illustrator and book artist living in Asheville, NC. Currently working as studio manager at Asheville BookWorks, a book and print studio, Laura has been able to pursue studies in print, paper and artist books since 2009. In artist books her illustration work has found a home and the content often reflects both personal and political interests.
