Additionally, Plank is the Assistant Director for the School of Fine Arts Printmaking both MFA and BFA at Academy of Art University. She is also a board member of the California Society of Printmakers. Plank describes this current body of work as a continuing series based on re-contextualizing information. In our current web-inflamed age, she finds a level of over-saturation with the availability of information and images. Plank experiments with reinterpreting found imagery with an aesthetic agenda. She utilizes the amazing beauty in charts, graphs, and other visual detritus that accumulate. Plank’s goal is for this informational detritus to take on a new role based on new juxtapositions and context.
