Secret Door Poster Print Series

six patterns for everyday spaces: Over the course of 2007, I will be making a set of six silkscreen prints about the architecture of everyday spaces: the organization, dimension, and structure of the ordinary places where we live. This printing/architecture project is supported by subscriptions: every two months subscribers receive a print.

You get six prints:
$21 each: $126 (Providence, Worcester, and Boston only!)
$26 each: $156
$32 each: $192
$38 each: $228

The reason for having different prices is so that people who want the prints can have them at an inexpensive price, while people who want to offer increased support to this project can do so.

Reconstructing Providence

An oral History of Providence by Robin Amer

In recent years, renovation and adaptive reuse of the mills has sparked intense debate, revolving around the city's efforts to revitalize the neighborhoods, and the need for artist' space in a city and region that promotes the arts. It is also a battle about gentrification, about who controls change in a city that's changing fast.

Reconstructing Providence is a documentary about the adaptive reuse of the city's mill buildings… and all the controversy that's come with it.

Robin Amer is an artist and independent radio producer based in Providence, RI. She is a graduate of Brown University's art semiotics program and was an artist-in-residence at AS220. The CD features an original score by Alec K. Redfearn and cover art by Jean Cozzens/secret door.
