Your Enthusiasm Can Wait is designed to bring up a discourse about how the products we use every day are packaged; and how we the consumer are affected by design choices. This exhibition is the redesign of three different household items, one design to enhance or exploit the flaw, and one offered a possible solution. As customers in a market economy, we have the choice of putting our "voting dollar" on products with packaging that is beneficial to us, not a struggle to get to the product we bought.

Artist Statement:

Becky Lynn Tochterman is a graphic designer born and trained in Maine. With an interest in packaging and technology, she works to integrate a sense of touch into her choice of materials. Her focus is studying how two dimensional design can come to fruition in three dimensional space. Her love of working with her hands has pushed her to work with form and how text and image translate both on and off screen. This ongoing study into the world of physical and digital design is what continues to draw Becky into the field of graphic design.
