My name is Libby Clarke, and I run a small studio called Monstress Productions in Brooklyn, New York. I create small, handheld conceptual art pieces using letter press, silkscreen, and die cutting. Up until now, I have tried to make them out of my own pocket resulting in small editions, which I give to family and friends. What I want to do is start to develop products for a larger audience, and to sell them.
I have developed a product I call the Here & Now Project to this end: it will be a small letter pressed and die cut kit containing several stickers imprinted with the words "HERE" and "NOW." The user will disperse the stickers in his home on on his commute, then when he encounters one later, he will be instructed to snap to the present moment. This small, meditative moment will hopefully being some relief to the stress of everyday life.
I also will be creating a website for the project, from which I will sell the products and keep track of user stories.
