Alternative Print Methods: Hand and Machine

This intermediate studio course explores new hybrid approaches to graphic thinking, integrating traditional and new print technologies in experimental ways. Students develop greater visual and conceptual range in the Dactyl Press studios while developing iterative projects involving color, text-based art, handmade books, and installations. Some projects explore photo-digital print processes, laser-cutting, and vector graphics. Readings, discussions, critiques, demonstrations, and collaborative exchanges consider the ongoing impact of media culture. Especially recommended for students interested in design, architecture, media arts, and book studies.
