"2016 MFA Thesis exhibition" Adobe Illustrator artwork, printing as postcards and large format posters and as a graphic for social media marketing. This piece was created for the Wayne State University Department of Art and Art History 2016 MFA exhibition featuring work by Kevin Campbell, MFA Printmaking. Inspired by the process of printmaking and its intersection with graphic design, which involved layering, typographic exploration and photographs of Kevin's work.
“It Takes Just One” 44"x20" Adobe Illustrator artwork, inkjet printing on fabric. Currently included in the "Just My Type" exhibition at Whitdel Arts in Detroit, Michigan, February 12-March 26, 2016. It takes just one minor error, whether its a punch card or programming code to create a disastrous error. Patterns of miscalculation and errors often occur with computer programming nowadays since punchcards are obsolete as a recording medium. This project is inspired by the punch cards that were widely used throughout the 18th and 19th centuries for controlling textile looms. Such automation would eventually give rise to the modern day computer processing. Humans are responsible for the programming that are often designed to prevent miscalculations...and since humans themselves are not error-free, there will always be miscalculations.
“341” Adobe Illustrator, inkjet on fabric, 60"x84" This piece represents the emotional timeline of 341 days...the time we found out she had epithelial ovarian cancer to the day she died. There were good days and not so good days. And when we found out the treatments werent working, her health declined and the days began to take on a sad, gloomy outlook. Not only did the days seem grey, my mothers appearance also changed, turning grey in appearance as we knew the inevitable was coming.
“the inevitability of what is to come” Adobe Illustrator, inkjet on fabric, 44”x24” As humans, one of our greatest delusions is our effort to control the world around us, attempting to change our environment and even people. We often resist change and anything that deviates from our plan manifests itself in a myriad of unique behaviors. However, change is always inevitable- an unknown factor that must be equated into every action.
