To ‘fit in’ means to belong or conform to something. My body of work uses printmaking to explore how individuals modify themselves to be accepted by societal norms. The cardboard boxes used as the base for my printmaking represent how individuals conform with society’s norms to ‘fit into’ set social standards. My work challenges this conformity as the buildings are not made to fit into the boxes – the boxes are made to suit the buildings.
