"'Voyage' No.2, 1/25, Linoleum Print on handmade textured paper
"My work focuses on utilizing printmaking and QR code technology as a creative non-traditional access method linking viewers to archival repositories, curated exhibitions, and aggregated data. Each work serves as a visual response to archival collection materials representative of the many stories that can be found deep within the archival landscape." -Sauda
