Why I Made This: Amee Pollack

The work of mixed-media and book artist Amee Pollack, which she describes as “handmade social commentary,” takes significant political and cultural ideas—the history of women’s suffrage, modern urban living, our digital lives—and presents them on a scale sometimes measured as small as three inches square.

Why I Made This: Nora Sadek

BFA student Nora Sadek has created a series of 24" circular paintings based on the 12 zodiac signs. The series begins with the first sign of the zodiac, Aries, and ends with the last sign, Pisces. Sadek—by the way, she's a scorpio—says, "When I meet someone, the first thing I ask them is their name, the second thing I ask is their sign."
