The Weingart project is all about deriving meaning from experimental process. We were tasked with creating 50 iterations using a singular subject or material. The project begins with no plan or idea for the final concept in mind. The goal is to be flexible and create an individual story with each composition. For my root elements, I used my Vermont voter registration receipt, a pink piece of paper with my personal information written in my handwriting. This document is proof of the legality behind my right to vote. I also incorporated pages from the Constitution of Puerto Rico. The reasoning behind choosing this item was that I thought it would be mostly in Spanish and more difficult for me to read. I couldn’t find a pdf version of the actual print that was in Spanish so I chose to use the English document I found. Then I kept perusing the Public Domain Review and found recordings and drawings of the Caribbean done by colonizers.
