A great research and investigation into the graphics and art of Sister Corita done by Julie Ault (former member of Group Material and still very active).
The graphics range from the religious to antiwar posters. One image from the book show a very active silkscreen workshop with nuns printing ahead perfectly dressed and not a stain on their fingers that too is impressive. Here are some online examples of her work.
For the Garage festival 09 Free Soil have conducted a site specific research project investigating the environment of the Baltic Sea.
We created an alternative archive of political and historical events that have occurred in the Baltic Sea region, especially Stralsund and linked these with the sea’s responses. The impact of Industrialisation, population growth and political changes has resulted in climatic and environmental changes recorded in the sea. Nature retaliates by creating new forms, one of the most significant being the spread and growth of toxic Blue Green Algae or “phytoplankton”
