“I go to the toilet, take a shower, brush my teeth and put on some makeup. At least I try to do these. I don’t understand these customs, and I tend to forget the common morning chores. But by human standards, I want to look nice, smell fresh and feel clean when I’m going to work, like any normal human being. I just don’t know how to use makeup correctly. I hope it all will soon become a routine that is executed almost automatically, like for many normal human beings.”
made during one of my university courses at aalto, this five-colour A5 risograph print was originally made for a collaborative book project. my part of the book tells a short story of “a totally normal human being”, who just wants to do “totally normal human stuff”. for this project, three different kinds of riso prints have been made at the printmaking workshop at aalto university and are available for sale. this print is 2/3 of the collection.
please note that all risograph prints are unique and may have slight difference in colour, slight misalignment of artwork or small marks due to nature of the printing. because of this, the text may be hard to read.
