Social Exchange (pictured) is a set of 180 miniature ‘thank you’ cards. It is a somewhat laughable resonance of the days’ accumulated imperfections, and a look into the mundane social exchanges that do and don’t live up to our ideals. Each card is left blank on the inside, and folded with ambiguous intention.
I would like to turn these miniature intaglio prints into a functional and exchangeable collection. The way I imagine it, they would be available in sets of 12 or one at a time, and would remain at an intimate scale of approximately 1.5 square inches. I would want to make easily installable shelves to display the sets of 12 on--one shelf per set. I'd also discuss with residency staff whether these should be editioned as intaglio prints or made less precious through a different print process.
The images I've included offer a glimpse of the tone of the piece. Installed here as sculpture, the cards are placed in alphabetical order on wooden shelves, infusing the impersonal, autonomous, mechanical reproduction of minimalism with humor, sentiment, and social blunder.
