• Safety Series

    For my final year of my BFA, I undertook an 8 month project that related to my summer job at a pulp mill.

    Inspired by WPA images from USA in the 1930s, I put a twist on posters that are hung as safety reminders. My regular work at the mill was to take care of all the landscaping. The times I was tasked with doing other roles, they tended to be mainly doing "hole watch" where you make sure carbon monoxide and other gasses don't get too high. During those days, I was able to sketch my surroundings inside the machines for processing pulp and paper.

    The first image of the series was "Use Eye Protection".

    The location was an exact spot that I had sketched during a hole watch session. Safety equipment was key to the job even when just sitting watching nothing.
