This project was created through a collaboration of CUP, myself and Domestic Workers United. I did the artwork for this. Karolina Lach did the type. CUP and DWU did all of the content, overseeing and distribution. Making Policy Public is a project that CUP created and has been spearheading for many years. Thank you Christine and Mark for letting me be a part of it. The unfolded poster side includes the rights in five languages – English, Spanish, Hatian Kreyole, Nepali, and Tagalog.

In the summer of 2010, I came up with a way to ensure that I would not succumb to stagnation and would continue to produce art during its dog days. I asked several artist to promise to make five, one color (black) screen prints each. Accountability to other artists would ensure that each artist would have to figure out how to make it happen. The results of that challenge produced the first Desaturate show made up of work from seven people.
Participating artist Derrick Buisch spearheaded the continuation of the project ushering in Desaturate 2 in 2013, in which two additional artist participated. I did five images but only liked three of them.
The show was made up of a series of MOOD pieces. Even in their absence, it could be said the subject matter still revolves around people but now the lens focuses on their reverberations. A recent viewing of Jean Painlevé’s microscopic look at undersea life brought to mind otherworldly landscapes and inspired the more textural approach to this series.
