The space transforms into a gallery for the final show.
Plates are displayed on custom-built shelves in order for the viewer to get close and view the chemical quality of each piece.
The residency took place at Sulfur Studios which has frequent foot traffic and interest from the Savannah community.

For attendee’s to be able to visualize how the plates came about and the steps involved.
Arranged in the order that they are used in order for the process to be better visualized for those unfamiliar with the steps involved.
