Careful reading of the original 1818 text suggests surprising visual directions, which inform our first Patchwork Exercise.

The class takes an introspective turn with the Mirror Exercise, which challenges us to visualize the True Self, as well as the Stranger and Monster that dwell within us.

We are beginning to understand the monster as a powerful metaphor, capable of crossing boundaries and bringing together what appears to be different. With this discovery in mind, we revisit the Patchwork Exercise.

All the while, we study graphic novels and their conventions: shape psychology, framing, abstraction, and panel logic.

Finally, eight of us present our discoveries in the form of original, Frankenstein-inspired graphic narratives.

Meanwhile, five of us produce
a short film that documents our explorations.
