Yesterday I posted 2 more videos to youtube. These videos are a continuation of the series “Expanding the Digital Print to Uncommon Surfaces” . The first 3 were about coating, printing carrier sheets and then the results. These last 2 are about the process that takes me from planning to assembling once the prints are finished. Check it out and view these videos Part 4 and Part 5.
The piece that was shown in the 5th part video, changed early this morning. One of those instant inspirations had me back in my studio to add to the piece. It ended up having a layer underneath that is a digital print on copper screen with a border of digitally printed hand made paper. The picture at the top of the post shows the final composition of the video piece.
The other pictures here are a some of the other pages in the start of Book of Forests 1. This is the first piece of the series with several more to come. As the piece continues, it will lead me as far as the layout of the book. The pages will be 10″ x 10″ on this one, but who knows what will happen from here.
Some of the materials used above:
Digital prints on watercolor paper, tyvec, lace paper, metallic crinkle paper, copper mesh, hand made skins, beverage cans and hand made paper
Jute twine, hemp cord, crocheted light weight hemp, copper wire, hardware cloth and waxed linen
