These stitched compositions each represent an object and its meaning to a fictional woman named Lorraine Wukowski. These mantras were inspired by the situations of her life and how people and objects left their impressions on her.
This curation (a collaboration between Libby Bogner and myself) began with chance methodology. We drew adjectives at random and set off on a search to acquire correlating objects from thrift and antique stores. Our next step was to create a fictional persona to whom the objects belonged. We chose to represent this story as a whole, through a series of typographic compositions visually inspired by both the objects and the context behind them.
