Lori Linton Printmaking Thesis Fall 2019


Dwelling is an embodiment and remembrance of the Sonoran Desert. It is a set of

letterpress printed poems and screen printed imagery from the Sonoran Desert in a box with

accompanying objects from the desert. The work is primarily about capturing the essence of

being in the Sonoran Desert; however, it’s also about showing the connection and biodiversity

that most people don’t envision when thinking of this place. Underneath that, it is about

pollination, dispersal and migration. I want to alter the viewers’ perceptions of what a desert is

and for them to understand it as a precious and beautiful place. It is a place to be protected and

taken care of. It is a reminder that there are other lives on this earth which enhance our own.
