Playing with Homophones
Stationary | Stationery
I used greeting cards that were gifted to me by family and friends throughout the years for different occasions.
I installed the greeting cards in large quantities in locations that they could typically be displayed in a home. The greeting cards referred to the homophone stationery while they stood in a stationary position. I discovered that the play on words was not the only concept that evolved. These sentimental cards portrayed my own attachments and connections with people. While the cards are physically staying still, they also capture a moment in time that was spent with those significant people.
