suzanne silver

three vinyl collages















Materials:
Spray paint, latex enamel, china marker, felt-tipped pens, monofilament on vinyl

Notes to Vinyl Collages:
Suzanne Silver sews layers of clear and pigmented vinyl using anagrams, palindromes, and sentence diagrams as compositional elements. She often collages both sides of the vinyl so that the work reads recto/verso like pages in a book. The collaged fragments are stitched together with monofilament; knots and unruly skeins join the layered wordings. The vinyl works can be positioned in multiple ways - suspended from the ceiling, attached to a wall, or placed on a desktop. The viewer perceives the relationship between physical materials and words through various directions, degrees, and orders of decoding.

soundscapes 2 – 4







Notes:
Sourced from two separate archives, the images come from the New York Public Library image archive and the sounds from the BBC sound archive. Multiple layers of sound design were used to create the effect of living images.

cheat codes and hyphae











Materials:
Cut-outs on black paper, 8.27 x 11.69 inches.

miriam saperstein

decomposition hat



















Materials:
Dried flowers and leaves, dried paint, found dead bugs from artists’ parents' garage, original comic on wax paper, metal strainer.

Notes:
Wear it when you’re having trouble sleeping for thinking of the vastness of the world or obsessing over small transgressions—it’s all going to decompose somehow.
