POST-CARD series by R.J. + Rebecca

RJ + Rebecca POSTCARD series

POST-CARD series by R.J. + Rebecca opens to the public at the POST-HAB gallery inside the Number House on Thursday, June 22nd. Stop by to see this special exhibition during regular gift shop / gallery hours, Thursday - Sunday from 12 - 5 p.m. Images in part of this series are available for purchase to support our vision for Heidelberg 3.0. 

POST-CARD series by  R.J. + Rebecca combines reclaimed paper provided by the Heidelberg Project with letterpress elements from The Alternative Press studio, now housed at the University of Michigan Library. This project is supported by the Design Lab Residency, Shapiro Library, and the University of Michigan. 

Letterpress elements and ink are from The Alternative Press letterpress studio and used with permission of the library and the press's co-founder, Ken Mikolowski. Tree images are drawn by Ann Mikolowski and Gel Pen art is by R.J. Miles. Most type was set and printed on a Chandler and Price platen press by Rebecca Chung, with some elements printed on a flatbed press by both Chung and Miles. 

Dr. Chung is a book a literary historian now studying information science at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. Her letterpress work is also included in the Shakespeare Library and Bodleian Library. In early childhood, Chung lived in the West Village, not far away from the Heidelberg Project site, and was captivated by the Project when she returned to the city in 2012. 

Artist R.J. Miles works with pen and ink and reclaimed paper to provoke reflection on relationships among visual objects, their context, and self-representation. He is also a doctoral student in anthropology at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor. His inspiration and work on the "postcard" comes from reflecting on his relationship with his grandfather after learning about Tyree's relationship with his grandfather. 

POST-CARD series by R.J. + Rebecca is on view at the POST-HAB gallery through Saturday, July 15th. The POST-HAB gallery is open Thursday - Sunday from 12 - 5 p.m.

The 30-year photo retrospective will feature images of a young Tyree Guyton and his grandfather Sam Mackey during the beginning stages of the Heidelberg Project, as well as iconic Heidelberg Project installations (both past and present) including works that were destroyed by recent fires and the 1991 and 1999 demolitions led by the city of Detroit.
