About the mentor

Nora Schmel:
I am a Barcelona & London based visual and book artist. The focus of my interest is based on construction and disarrangement within words, characters and places. I like playful and humorous approach to obscure topics. My main materials are paper, ink and pictures in various forms. You most often find me sitting with my typewriter, making collages manually or by using a photocopier, printing with letterpress, photolithography or the risograph machine, or carrying a pile of books out from libraries.
