As part of her residency at arebyte, artist Gretchen Andrew deploys the looping GIF medium to explore what you can and cannot learn, and by way of learning, ‘become’, by following “how to” videos on YouTube. HOW TO HOW TO HOW TO write a novel applies this self-taught process to writing a first novel.
