Softly to Pip is a project involving printmaking, illustration, writing, weaving, and embroidery. A series of 9 cyanotypes on cotton provide the basis of the project, containing fictional letters between two women who nearly fall in love in a distant future. The details of the story are filled in through a variety of silkscreen, risograph, and woven ephemera that fill in the gaps of their near romance. Excerpts of some of these objects are shown below.
