A Sacred Place

✶ Risograph Printing
✶ Book Design

Risograph printed archive that resurrects forgotten digital photographs of girls bedrooms from the 2000’s. All images were sourced from Flickr. The book challenges viewers comfort by exploring perceptions of vulnerability. The images in the piece, initially comforting and nostalgic, take on a more uncomfortable and intimate quality when paired with book’s title.

The bubblegum pink risograph printed pages are bound together with delicate pink thread, tied into bows. The book itself is swathed in a fragment of my personal childhood, fabric from a baby pink pillowcase I once used. Heart-shaped pointelle and silk pink trim adorn the edges, transforming it into an object of comfort, closely resembling a pillow.
