    By screenprinting epoxy ink onto paper and then treating it with a mix of silvering chemicals, it was discovered that the result was a lasting silvered image. Because of the variety of ways the chemistry responded to the surface, the project developed into a small, variable edition of 8. Each image from 7 Sins incorporates a different number of calories, which corresponds with an activity and the energy units required to complete it. -LeRoy Neiman Center for Print Studies
