Like a Thousand Years Ago
Poster Design

Format: 11 x 17 in.
Like a Thousand Years Ago, is a project by artist Jennifer Bennett in partnership with FILTER Detroit and Popps Packing, an artist-­run neighborhood-­based nonprofit organization.

Popps Packing hosted a series of clay and pit firing workshops with Jennifer, who collected and processed clay from Ohio and Detroit that was used by participants to create small scale works such as sound balls, beads, little sculptures and vessels. All works were fired over night in a pit, an ancient practice still employed around the world.

Jennifer sent me photos of all the pieces she was going to use for the workshop resulting in this rather abstract poster of building blocks which almost read as symbols.
