Most recently, Alison used resources to create an original wallpaper to be installed at the latest Dirt Place public project, the Wedding Cake House. Alison designed intricate 4-color repeating design for her wallpaper. The design was inspired by textiles from the RISD museum Tirocchi collection. Although, she handprinted all of the wallpaper at her home studio, Alison utilized our large format inkjet printer in our media arts space to produce her films.
