Shadows from the Walls


Shadows from the Walls is a folio of risograph-printed patterns that sample and remix popular wallpaper designs of the Victorian Age. The botanical motifs are inspired by the arsenical wallpaper samples included in Robert C. Kedzie’s 1874 book of warning, “Shadows from the Walls of Death: facts and inferences prefacing a book of specimens of arsenical wallpapers.” Though arsenic pigments allowed for the mass production of vibrant and durable colors, the cost was lethal – making ill the inhabitants of the wallpapered rooms. Of the original 100 copies of Kedzie’s book, only four remain.
