Double Pages

Do double pages have a distinct condition that engage with the viewer? Can double pages be considered pieces of art?

The key aspect in my research is exploring the page and in particular the double page spread as a material support and a discursive space for visual ideas within an exhibition context. The starting point is the context behind the poem Un Coup de Dés as a catalyst to understand how the dual form of the page originated and how it has forged an image-icon becoming one of the most important vehicles for the transmission of ideas and culture. Investigating how these connotations associated with the book, condition the way we read and absorb meaning.
