Karen Hardy: Mis-Direct-Ion Re-Direct-Ive
Re-Direct-Ive, 2014, abaca handmade paper with
letterpress printing. 5.75" x 4.5" x 0.4"
Re-Direct-Ive is a journey through progressive stages from passivity to action. The text
imagery describe a struggle to overcome a state of apathy and indecision caused by fear
Because the handmade paper is translucent, as many as three or four sheets can be visible
when layered, creating an evolving visual narrative that comes in and out of focus much as
may wax and wane. It is composed of twelve double-sided 4" x 11" prints, bound
with a modified long stitch
in a variable edition of five.
