These thirty-two screen prints on reclaimed cardboard were designed to be displayed together and sold individually to make me rich. Each piece is unique and I enjoy how the character of the different cardboards come through here. At the time I felt pretty dumb, but dumpster diving in my dress shoes at work paid off.
The colorful base layers you see here were printed as a gradient, with two inks coming together through one stencil. I think that this results in an effective lighting scheme, with the white light diffusing through the trees into a colorful sky. In some pieces, this reads as daylight and in others as moonlight. .
The box frames are made from oak flooring and involved a furious weekend of woodworking. But it was worth it as I love how the clean lines of the hardwood complement the rough edges of the cardboard. .
This image comes from one of my favorite glades in Golden Gate Park, near the DeYoung museum and the cones are a mystery.
