Above/Below

Abovebelow is an exchange portfolio completed during the spring semester of 2016 at the University of Wisconsin - Madison in the Letterpress & Book Arts seminar. Students were given the theme of 'above and below' and asked to interpret what the words mean to them in a conceptual matter. Consisting of two prints that make up one edition, students used the techniques and skills they learned throughout the semester as well as incorporating other skills from their mediums in order to create an edition of 15. The studio seminar was a mix of both undergraduate and graduate students.
