Site of Impact

Site of Impact: Polarities & Prepositions

A collaborative project between Shiloh Jines & Leila Weefur.

2016, 18"x30", 12 letterpress prints, garamond metal type

2016, Letterpress Chapbooks with letterpress print insert, garamond metal type


This collaborative project consists of

twelve letterpress prints, along with this

chapbook.  This book is for those of you

who will never see the prints, or those

who will only carry this book as a memory—

as a key or continuation of a dialogue.

Know that each movement

(in/out, on/off, up/down) implicates

your body as you move through the time

& space of binaries. & because every

body is not this or that & because these

terms we’ve created are exclusionary &

destructive, hold close the symbol of the

ampersand and its critical role. It is located

in the corners of our prints, insisting

on a non-binary space—an act of

binding, linking & cinching opposites.
