Risograph Playground: Image Deconstruction and (Re)Interpretation
the memory machine
15:00 - 16:30
In the age of Instagram, why do we still make photo prints?
It all started ten years ago, when I tried to print my photos with a 3-in-1 inkjet printer. These days, I have been exploring image making with risograph duplicators. Through combining different ink colours, papers, and editing processes, we can uncover new layers in each photo-story.
Welcome! Let me show you around my fun- and surprise-filled risograph playground!
