This is a series of screenprints based on photos that my sister took on various trips to Taiwan. As a response to my memories of eating street food and playing on my grandparent’s farm, my color palette includes fluesorent colors: hot pink, lime green, neon orange, and turquoise. These colors highlight the bright city lights that I always see in Taiwan, and are a symbolic of the happiness I always feel when visiting there. Muted colors made the fluesorent ones more readable, and, for the process, I used a paper stencil and computer photo transfer.

The current plague hung up at RISD does not address Providence’s prominent slave trade history. To show the connection with plaque, I used the plaque’s metal type as a tool to write my message. I enjoyed creating this piece and the way it looks like nothing because it is representative of how the history of slavery is often overlooked.
