The Bridge, No.12 from The 100 Houses Project series. 2016.
The 100 Houses Project is a compilation of 100 block prints that depict houses in different scenarios. Begun in 2016, this body of work draws from Hamilton’s own experience relocating to different places over the course of her life, while also considering the experiences of others. Wildfire evacuations, environmental disaster, war, and homelessness are some issues that her prints depict. With this body of work, Hamilton gives pause to reflect on how different life events can impact one’s identity, sense of place, and security.
