Melissa Haviland uses domestic objects as a cultural lens to explore relationships: personal and economic. The home is a platform for interaction from conversation to negotiation. Examining the power of objects in our lives as totems and commodities, Haviland pushes the boundaries of printmaking, multiples, and play to reference the reiteration of objects and ideas in our culture.
