The Third Scene, 2023
Letterpress printing poster
The Third Scene is part of a series imagining an immersive nature-inspired festival of sound and meditation. This experience invites viewers to embrace Mother Nature's cradle, shedding negativity through the tender embrace of wind and water. The tactile practice of lino-cutting and setting metal type during the creation process puts the artist in touch, literally, with natural elements. Tradition and innovation blend as characters align like musical notes, colors flow like soul journeys, and textured paper evokes land and forests. The analog design process honors the tangible and rejects digital ease, evoking a nature-mirroring symphony and sparking imagination.
