“ Print, in its duplication, repetition and dispersal, saturates contemporary culture. It embodies communication, demarcates economic values and archives past and present.
Perverse and pervasive, print underlies and fuels creative output from the initial stages of research to production and presentation.
In its promiscuous ubiquity, it becomes invisible – from supermarket packaging to the typography of museum labels, we stop seeing the layers of printed intent and content with the abundance of printed matter surrounding us.
This characteristic invisibility makes it a perfect lens through which to look at art practices today. How does awareness of print processes inform and influence contemporary studio practice? ”
Holly Graham and Weixin Chong (in Thinking Through Print, Royal College of Art, 2014)
