☠ PIRACY, where am I?

After wednesday’s meeting, I decided to keep it simple and to take the photos between the shelves of the library, as if I couldn’t take the book out or reproduce it. Check it out ☟

the photos I chose☟

These are the raw photos, since the book will be printed in two spot colours I will have to modify them (maybe make them duotone).
The two colours are the following (we took orange over mustard) ☟

And regarding the layout design I will put the photos on the spreads and play with the margins (see example ☟)

PIRACY ☠

March 28, 2011

New work with the Print Matters and And publication on reproduction. We have to choose a book (or an extract) and reproduce it (at its widest sense). For us print matters, Rathna added a other element to the brief, we are going to send our book (each one of us has one section and the book is a collection of projects) to an organisation, and our text and its reproduction will be context specific.

Anyway, my text is an introduction to the definition of pseudo-science ▾

I thought that it would be relevant to look at the copyright law to find a tweek to reproduce the content, and I came across something called incidental inclusion. Basically it’s when, for example, a piece of work is in the background of a photo, or if a music is played when recording a movie, etc. SO, what I am doing is taking photos that will ‘incidentally’ contain the text.

♢ Prints In Progress — Update ♢

March 8, 2011

We finished caandides’ new poster’s acetate yesterday (we just added the myspace and put another black layer to make sure it is opaque). I made the screen this morning and we will print the posters tomorrow and thursday.

………………………………………………………………………………………………….

Then the 50 prints diagram thing protest. I decided to keep it as it is and not to add another layer of information ortherwise it would have become too complicated.

And since I had spare time this morning I made another poster as a reaction to the fact that in King’s cross there is room for retail spaces but not for workshops, therefore workshops.

I am not too happy with design or the colours, I might add another layer tomorrow morning.

prints in progress

March 6, 2011

First, something I am working on for the print matters interest group for the protest against the move of the printmaking and bookbinding facilities to Byam Shaw. I decided to make a diagram of how I think and work on my projects, from the idea to the finished objects, how things are interlaced and how it is important to have as many facilities as possible at hand in order to push the projects further.

I don’t know if I am happy with it. I would like it to become a bonker pattern with no begining and no end.

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Another print I have been working on (with Gabriel Wéber) is a poster for Caandides gig on march 23rd. We have decided to keep the ‘template’ of last years poster so that they become part of a series.

This is the current artwork (we will add a couple of elements)

Some preliminary sketches

…………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Both of these shall be printed by friday!

Wild Animals

February 8, 2011

While I was trying to do my halftone image for the print matters tomorrow, I started to play with my objects (plastic animals) and the scanner, nothing too conceptual just a lot of fun (and cheesiness).

the best one is definitly this one ☝
