"Units is a set of 27 letterpress printed cards in a folded enclosure. The concept is based on the repurposing of architecture and the seemingly interchangeable lives conducted within. On one side of the cards is the outside of a building (loosely based on downtown White River Junction, VT). The other side of the cards show the people and activity on the inside. Some cards even show the top and bottom views of the goings on. The cards are slotted to allow assembly of different buildings and configuration of occupants. Pen and ink illustrations, letterpress printed with photo polymer plates on French Speckletone paper." - https://mcbaprize.org/sarah-smith-units/
