Greeting Cards

Greeting Cards comes from a series of 2011 projects in which I was working to create real conversations about difficult subjects while simultaneously acknowledging the social taboos about doing so. I chose to re-create greeting cards because, in purchasing one, they are an easy way to express what might be complicated feelings--however they are also mass-produced, and so often end up saying nothing at all. The greeting cards I created were designed to look like real cards one might find in a store, but they are aimed toward specific people in my life, and say more than what we are comfortable hearing (or saying, for that matter).
