What did you find most interesting about Daniel Flohr?  Georg Daniel Flohr observed the world around him every day of his journey.  He was a young man from a relatively uneducated background on an exciting and frightening adventure,Talcott_039_open

How does this project relate to your studio practice? I am a printmaker that works mostly in relief prints: woodcut and linoleum.  I keep several journals: a travel journal when I travel, a sketchbook for my studio practice, and a daily journal of my thoughts upon waking.  These will never have the historical import of Georg Daniel Flohr’s journal, as they are by nature very personal.   However I can relate to the impulse to record one’s days and impressions.  Talcott_036_closedMy book and poster for this project are extensions of my travel journal practice, which is related to my background in illustration.  I chose to illustrate Georg Flohr (GF) and his voyage with my own vocabulary of shapes and images using linoleum prints and collage.
