Repurposing Woodblocks

When printing, I fall in love with the smell of the ink, the sound of the smacking rollers, and the texture of the wood as it transforms from smooth to rough with every surface cut. Within the process of printmaking there is a lot of waste. By turning the woodblock into furniture it gives insight into the process of how the prints were created. The viewer is now able to see every little cut that went into creating the prints. Rather than just collecting dust, the woodblocks are repurposed into functional furniture. By placing all the prints around the furniture it allows the entire process to come together into a room filled with black and white.
