Intaglio is an old medium that requires much time and patience while Snapchat is a new and fleeting one. This playful print combines the two to reflect on the instantaneous platforms of self-expression we are afforded today.
This intaglio print is a continuation of "Long Break." It further explores feelings of confusion, abnormality and isolation but also comfort, safety and transcendence at night.
The abstract feelings experienced at night, lying in bed inspired a tangible, sculptural form.
