Abstract: I have been fascinated by the shapes and textures of objects , how their properties not only capture beauty , but also tell stories of intent and use. My goal for this project was to investigate these objects , learn their stories , and convey that through letterpress and silkscreen printing. I include references to personal stories , advertisements and songs based on the objects , as well as the history of each object. The beginning prints focused mainly on precise research , highly designed compositions and learning the process of printing. As the project went on , I became looser in my interpretation of the project. The later prints show far more experimentation , in method of printing , how the object was referenced and the emotional capacity of the objects. In addition , my later prints respond to each other , discovering and building upon the connections between the shapes textures and stories. My last two prints Whisper and Scream are a response to what I had learned throughout the process , and are a reflection on the body of work I have completed.
