curator's ǝpoɔSolar System ScopeYear of Astronomy - Pepper & CinnamonYear of Astronomy Year of Astronomy is an integral part of my thesis — The Papercy Project (c. 2009-2010). At its heart, The Papercy Project is about resonance. There will always be both quantifiable and abstract aspects of graphic design that we have to reconcile and contend with — the tangible and intangible. I sought to achieve this by making my outcomes as open-ended to interpretation as possible, letting them derive personal meaning to ones who would view or use them. My choice of medium to express this is paper — a material increasingly sidelined in a digital world. In Year of Astronomy, I augmented digital prints with handicraft methods (letterpress, silkscreen, varnish, die-cut, emboss, etc.) and different textures of paper with overlays (which can be switched around for different compositions).
