This work marked the beginning of a heavy emphasis on gel image transfers to get a paper-like texture to the image that I was placing on the panels. I felt like the image transfer created the photocopy effect very well; something that was familiar to youth in underserved schools. It also made a somewhat damaged surface which added variety to any other materials that were added to the work.
