i'm all talk

a senior thesis exhibition by Heather Grace | march 2018 | princeton, nj

Images thanks to Kathleen Ma

The original poster (left) that I designed for the show featured the title "i'm all talk." As the opening approached, I began to worry that the title undermined the seriousness of the show's content, and designed the second poster (middle) with an assertive, female POV in mind. The third image (right) was created soon after, and all three designs were circulated for the show's publicity.

hey does anyone remember when the 

constitution was written??? it was way back when SLAVERY was considered just fine and there was SURE AS HELL no such thing as gender equality or

y’all remember when the constitution was written??? back when slavery was A-OKAY and no one gave a shit about anyone else, so if you have to maybe re-evaluate a couple things in that bad boy, and just kinda check that it’s up-to-date with our way of American life over 200 years later then you just GO RIGHT AHEAD 

haha hey guys remember 1787? 

well remember how that was a LONG ASS TIME AGO and so maybe we could change some things 

OKAY SO WHERE’S YOUR MILITIA? you’d rather have your big ol hunting guns and god knows what else to kill some hairy pigs so that mentally not-so-sane Rob down the street can have just as good a chance of buying one at Walmart, too, and then when he shoots up another school because someone didn’t like his essay on the 2nd amendment, it’ll be alright cuz you’ll just go kill some more pigs that weekend and pat your buddy Doug on the back for being equally committed to your idiotic infatuation with weaponry

ANY OF YOU LOVELIES REMEMBER when over the summer between our junior and senior year just a week after arts camp we all woke up planning to go to the beach when we saw that the SWAT team was on our high school campus and we didn’t know why until we knew that one of the janitors had shot and killed two other janitors somewhere behind the cafeteria 

we planted a tree for both the janitors Ted Orama, 56 and Christopher Marshall, 48 but not Javier Burgos the one who fled to rural Colombia after he shot and killed the others and then when he was arrested four years later in 2017 we all shared the article on Facebook saying “what a relief” 

and hey remember the next year in high school when two students a brother and sister were shot dead by their mother it was in the morning on an odd day and I was in 1st period AP Lit and I wasn’t late for once and I remember the sinking feeling I got when I read the notification on my phone that there was a double homicide just down the street and i knew it was one of us maybe two

around noon we found out that the answer was two 

and then when we held the memorial everyone was out front of the school and we cried and cried and the band teachers cried and their dad was there and he cried and then two years later Daniel our fucking class president is out here Facebook commenting that maybe if there were more guns around during WWII for the Jews to protect themselves with then the Holocaust could have been prevented. you just can’t wrap your head around an idiocy that phat

i’m sorry but if we can’t get on the same page with respect to gun safety then where in the hizzle are your pages in relation to mine
