Resnick’s work has always focused on language. She believes that communication is elusive. Words and images that appear commonplace to one generation may be unknown to another. She presents this intergenerational mix-up by using images from early- and mid-twentieth century manuals on home management, décor, repair, health and education with contemporary imagery from home photos and fashion magazines. She hopes this encourages information displacement and disorientation, similar to information overload in today's easy data access, while still retaining a sense of humor.
