MetadataShow full item record
I have for the past 25 years researched old photomechanical processes where my main focus has been especially photogravure or heliogravure on copper. I have also researched photoetching & collotype. This lecture will concern research into historical print archives/institutions as well as interviews with persons & other relevant archives. Current research involves researching European archives in reference to historical imprints, fragments, recovered & retrieved objects. This research is put into a framework of actions that consist of recycling of already printed information be it own artwork put into a new contextual framework or historically produced work from archives put into new form.
