Many Happy Returns (pink/blue)
Many Happy Returns (pink/blue)
Screenprint on hand-dyed paper
16" W x 20" H

Printed by Anders Zanichkowsky and published by Spudnik Press Cooperative. Edition of 16 with a publisher’s chop mark and signed on the reverse.

Each print is dyed with a natural pigment on the left side (turmeric and beet juice) corresponding to a list of things that can be composted. The right side is dyed with a synthetic dye, and corresponds to materials that are not typically compostable. The text doubles as both a functional resource list and a poem that meditates on the act of enriching soil with organic waste. This broadside, which is itself compostable, illustrates the ways in which consumption and production are interdependent and always in flux.
