For the Gourd Series, I took photographs with a pinhole camera made with a gourd and was curious about how its shape might warp the view. Using alternative printmaking and photographic processes, I printed the image on a variety of materials including organza silk and paper. I then layered the two with an interest in what perceptual shift might occur as they interacted.
