Summary
"Eight bedrooms examines the prominent role that memory serves in my relationship with my twin sister. From birth through our senior year in college, we shared eight bedrooms, and each page in this book presents a specific memory each of us formed in that place. Sara and I both wrote the text for the book; I letterpress printed her memories in green and mine in red. On each page, I used a pochoir technique to create a matching circle to represent where each of us slept in that room. I drew the floor plans of each bedroom as closely to scale as I remember them, then carved the images from linoleum. These drawings were scanned and converted into small photopolymer images for the title page and cover imagery"--Artist's statement from Tramp & Vamp website (viewed June 13, 2014)
