My inspiration for my concept came from the early to mid 1900s. Focusing on how to be a gentleman (or gentle-lady) was a main part of my process. My ‘calling cards’ came from the idea of the acquaintance card during the early to mid 1900s. The result of this project addresses rape in an indirect way. The calling cards would be available for people to give to the person that they’re interested in –- and be used to ‘court’ them. Read Less
