During my Design Sabbatical, I created postcard size collages to process my experiences on the road. I photographed each one on site, and then carried them home, arriving with 176 of them in my back pack. If graphic design is the arrangement of word and image to communicate a pre-determined message, then for me collage is graphic art in the service of mystery, an unconscious arrangement of found word and image to discover complex meanings. A visual poem of experience. This personal practice replenishes my design mind, so I have decided to continue it, whether I'm traveling or not.
